This project aims to fundamentally change how transport data is used by using it to generate transport intelligence by using data analysis and modelling tools working on historic and real-time traffic data to provide intelligent decision support. This will faciliate dynamic transport planning, and ultimately additional information flow to end users of traffic infrastructure and beneficial effects such as reduction of traffic network congestion.
The project includes a number of partners from the university, government, and commercial sectors.
At the University of York, resources are dedicated to data capture from City of York Council, Kent County Council, and other sources, and data analysis tools working on these feeds.
