On 1st October 2020, 10:30 – 11:30, the session “Data-driven decision making tools for small and medium-sized cities” took place in UMD2020.
Questions on; how can data analysis be used as a tool to improve mobility and transport in cities; what are the benefits of collecting real traffic data, and what tools do small and medium-sized cities have to make to design and implement sustainable mobility measures based on scientific evidence, provided the fertile ground for insights and solutions.
The session shed light on these crucial issues drawing on the experience of the EU-funded SUITS project. Efficient and cheap technologies to collect mobility data in urban areas and discover new ways sustainable mobility measures be designed by building on data collection.
Cities that have successfully tested the technologies and realised the benefits of the data collection technologies within the SUITS project shared their first-hand experience. Furthermore, the session also featured contributions from the EU-funded WeCount and MOMENTUM projects.
