Abstract: During 2005, the CSIR ran a small experiment in the Pretoria area to test the feasibility of tracking passively cellular telephones, and hence people. Based on the success of that pilot, we initiated a large project to assess various aspects of tracking cellular telephones and using the data to populate transport and other models. We report here on one of the pilots, known as DYNATRACK (Dynamic Daily Path Tracking), a larger experiment conducted in 2007 with a more heterogeneous group of commuters in the Cape Town area. We discuss the technologies used to track participants and construct their travel routes, problems with recruiting participants, the ethical issues, and the results of the project
