- June 10: Leveraging big data for public transport planning
Using wifi sensors enhanced with APC data to calculate detailed origin-destination matricesBy using state-of-the-art Wi-Fi sensing technologies, optionally combined APC data, O/D matrices can be calculated with very high precision. Testing and pilot projects have shown good results. FourC, together with Kolumbus AS, the public transport authority of Rogaland county, as well as SINTEF, Scandinavia's largest independent research institution, are now preforming a large-scale, multimodal travel pattern analysis project involving more than 130 vehicles, boats and ferries, and city bike locations in order to calculate an accurate and complete multimodal O/D matrix for the city of Stavanger. The project is funded by the Research Council of Norway and Innovation Norway. The latest scientific and practical results of this and other projects on the subject will be presented at UITP.
