Leveraging Public and Open Data for Transportation Mode detection
Sponsor: Swisscom
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Marija Nikolic (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM)
Period: September 04, 2017-September 04, 2018
Modern smartphones are more than just calling devices. They harbor a wealth of information that provides the transportation field with a new potential. In this project, researchers will create a transportation mode detection model based on telecommunication data from smartphone users combined with public transport-related data sources. The researchers are provided with anonymized telecommunication traces. As those data remain scarce, additional data will be identified from external sources including network infrastructure, route maps, time schedules in static or real-time form, microcensus, weather, etc. A probabilistic model will be developed to infer the transportation modes from those various data sources. The project lasts one year, and will be carried out by the Transport and Mobility Laboratory, directed by Prof. Michel Bierlaire. It is sponsored by Swisscom.
Pedestrian dynamics: flows and behavior
Sponsor: Swiss National Science Foundation
Team: Michel Bierlaire (PI), Bilal Farooq (PM), Riccardo Scarinci (PM), Antonin Danalet, Flurin Hänseler, Marija Nikolic
Period: April 01, 2012-March 31, 2015
This project aims at developing mathematical models of pedestrian dynamics, both at aggregate and disaggregate levels. Integrated and holistic mathematical models will handle the complexity of this unique transport mode and help us to answer open research questions. in the future, such foundations will also allow to create the tools society needs to better understand pedestrian dynamics.
