Each trip can be viewed, approved and, if necessary, corrected by the user. DAT Mobile claims that in this way highly accurate and complete travel diaries can be obtained with little effort. Sense.DAT includes self-learning algorithms to detect habitual patterns in behaviour. As a result, the app will automatically detect frequently used routes and frequently visited places.

DAT Mobile says that Sense.DAT offers an experience sampling option, which makes it possible to ask additional questions based on actual travel behaviour. These questions will be put to users from the mobility study in which they are participating.
