With the growth of cities, the management of public transport networks becomes more difficult. That has a huge impact in the comfortability of passengers using the public transport network.
We envision a seamless and easy access to the public transport in cities for everyone. One way to foster this concept is developing smartphone-based systems for the automatic billing for the use of public transport.
We concentrate in developing artificial intelligence algorithms to recognize the mean of transport that the users of the public transport network are using. Concretely, we concentrate in detecting the use of buses, trams, subways and short-distance trains. This will allow a better management of the public transport network, and a better planning of the city.
