There are only few requirements for being able to participate:

  • you bring your own bicycle that is safe to use during the case study
  • you speak English or German
  • you make yourself familiar with the defined routes before starting to cycle


To achieve high output quality and comparability, it is important to ensure constant conditions. Therefore, I kindly ask you to follow these instructions:

  • Please follow the given routes: no detours, no unnecessary stops in between, etc.
  • Use bicycle infrastructure where available (bike lane or path directly on or next to the road)
  • Do not listen to music, cycle next to or talk to someone else while cycling
  • Please make sure that the sensor device and mobile app are set up correctly before starting (you will be guided)
  • Start the recording and wait for a minute before cycling
  • Ride carefully - it's not a race. Just go with a speed you feel comfortable with.
  • When you finished a route in one direction, please stop recording in the app and prepare for the next trip (I'll explain how it works)

Thank you! That's it.
After successful participation you will receive your 10 Euro voucher for local shopping centre Europark!
