Influences of Temporal Factors on GPS-based Human Mobility Lifestyle

by   Tran Phuong Thao, et al.

Analysis of human mobility from GPS trajectories becomes crucial in many aspects such as policy planning for urban citizens, location-based service recommendation/prediction, and especially mitigating the spread of biological and mobile viruses. In this paper, we propose a method to find temporal factors affecting the human mobility lifestyle. We collected GPS data from 100 smartphone users in Japan. We designed a model that consists of 13 temporal patterns. We then applied a multiple linear regression and found that people tend to keep their mobility habits on Thursday and the days in the second week of a month but tend to lose their habits on Friday. We also explained some reasons behind these findings.
