  1. 1. Mining Mobile Sensor Data for Transportation Modelling Peter Widhalm
  2. 2. Transportation Modelling Goal: optimizing the transporation system by understanding, predicting and influencing travel behavior accurate modeling of the effects of different policies before implementation 2 Policy decisions regarding the transportation system have a tangible impact on many people!
  3. 3. Motivation Traditional household surveys expensive limited sample size no up-to-date data data quality / incomplete data last nation-wide survey conducted in 1995! IT support for mobility surveys goals: reduce costs, improve data quality collect trip data automatically: • Smartphones / GPS tracker • Cellular network

  12. 12. Take home message Travel data collected with Smartphone Apps can assist traditional mobility surveys. Passively collected cell phone data are generated by infrastructure already in place. By combining cell phone data with other data sources such as census data, points-of-interest, land use they provide rich and up-to-date information about human travel behavior. Cell phone data help us to predict the effects of policies before implementation and to evaluate their effect after implementation 12
