Global Positioning System (GPS) devices have advanced rapidly and their costs are decreasing. GPS is certainly a promising technology for surveying travel behaviour. It demonstrates great potential as a survey instrument for tracking individual mobility and travel behaviour, by enabling surveys to be conducted for longer periods and by providing more accurate data on the spatial and temporal framework of travel. Besides these improvements, the utilisation of new technologies may reduce respondent burden and survey cost, which should have significant impacts on data accuracy and quality. Moreover, the relatively low burden for the respondent allows substantially extended survey duration: at least one week with GPS, compared to one day with conventional questionnaires. The feasibility of large-scale GPS-based surveys depends (but not solely) on the acceptability of such technology to collect data. Based on the French National Travel Survey (FNTS) conducted in 2007-08 with a sub-sample of approximately 750 voluntary interviewees.
