  • Publication number: 20230196908
    Abstract: An approach is provided for determining a bicycle lane disruption index based on vehicle sensor data. The approach, for example, involves retrieving sensor data collected from one or more devices within proximity of a bicycle lane. The sensor data is geotagged with location data. The approach also involves processing the geotagged sensor data to identify an observed obstruction to bicycle traffic on the bicycle lane. The approach further involves map-matching the location data to a bicycle lane segment of a geographic database. The approach further involves computing the bicycle lane disruption index for the bicycle lane segment based on the obstruction. The bicycle lane disruption index indicates a probability of encountering any obstruction on the bicycle lane segment. The approach further involves storing the bicycle lane disruption index as an attribute of the bicycle lane segment in the geographic database.
