Data Story

Citizen Science – Experimenting the possibility
Meet Ben
Why - Ben needs help to understand what is his life choices ? What he truly desires ?

What and How - High Level Solution Pointers
Push Notification – Before Ben gets up in the morning – push notification (Today’s Travel Analysis) in his PTV Mobile APP
He clicks the notification – PTV APP opens up – Dashboard pops up – 
Dashboard – Choice of Life of using PT
Real time comparison – Travel time Using PT and Travel time using Car.
Real time comparison – PT Travel Cost and Car Travel Cost 
( Petrol, Toll (with or without toll) , Parking (Early Bird and Late)
Distance from home to Station – Calorie Burn (Healthy Choice) – Google Maps API
Predict Crash (Brownie Point – Algorithm based prediction)
Average Points during a particular point and point time frame
Chances of Crash
Saving fossil fuel for future
Environment of CO2 emission reduction Revenue – Percentage reduction using PT 
Rewards – Gaining rewards using PT ( Accumulation of no of days of usage of PT)
