Get somewhere quick, or get somewhere healthy? Quickest route, shortest route, route with the least traffic… Contemporary route planners offer people an array of route choices for getting from A to B. But with pollution rates varying from street to street, what about the most healthy route?
Addressing this, our Healthy Urban Route Planner (HURP) team is working on the technology that’ll provide cyclists and pedestrians in Amsterdam the opportunity to choose not for the quickest, shortest or aesthetically pleasing route, but the route with the least air pollution.
This project is an AMS Stimulus Project. The aim of Stimulus Projects is to give to new and existing AMS partners support to innovative research that has a strong upscaling potential. The projects should realize short-term research output, which act as a catalyst of a new solution direction, concept or approach.
