The innovative software developers at BrennerPlan GmbH have developed a smartphone / tablet App for roadside interviews that significantly reduces required time and resources. The App allows surveyors to gather information on origins / destinations of interviewed motorists, as well record the trip purpose, type of vehicle and the number of passengers.
By replacing the outdated pen and paper method, the quality of the collected data is significantly improved. The App comes with a list of preconfigured street names and POIs relevant to the study area, which are suggested to surveyors using the built-in autocomplete functionality. This eliminates errors associated with illegible data entries as well as saving time and effort in entering reoccurring names.
The collected data can be sent in real time via the internet to our engineers to be directly checked for plausibility and to be processed further, guaranteeing that no records are lost.
The App offers an immense time saving advantage as it eliminates the need for the tedious and time consuming data entry step where each data set had to be deciphered and typed in to a database.
BPSurvey runs on Android OS, the world’s most widespread operating system for mobile devices (market share over 80% worldwide) and has been successfully used in several projects.
