The SUITS webinar “on data management and exploitation for sustainable urban mobility”, will advocate crowdsourcing as a sustainable and low-cost method to acquire mobility data and it will present a data modeling approach to minimize traffic delays. It will also discuss approaches to effectively handle the potentially “big data” that may result from the proposed data collection methodologies.

The webinar will take place on May 05, 2020, 14:00 CET.

Developing public policy for SUMP implementation, that balances the needs of citizen mobility with urban freight logistics and land-use conflicts, requires extensive traffic data collection and traffic monitoring. Only through the close and continuous monitoring of such a complex system (in a sustainable way) can this system be improved and the effectiveness of public policies be properly assessed. This webinar will present tools and methodologies for the collection, modeling, management and exploitation of urban mobility data that can maximize the effectiveness and sustainability of urban transport measures and policies.

The webinar is targeted at local authorities (mainly transport and mobility departments), as well as researchers and other stakeholders, whose work focuses on urban mobility planning, optimization and policy making.

The webinar will be moderated by Frederic Rudolph, project coordinator at the Wuppertal Institute.

Speakers are:

Dr. Fotis Liotopoulos, Computer Engineer and General Manager of SBOING (

Dr. Liotopoulos will present:
– a web-based tool for the selection and extraction of global user mobility traces (GPX files) from a database of over half a million traces.
–, a web platform for real-time and historical urban traffic monitoring
– The results of a pilot implementation of urban traffic monitoring through crowdsourcing, using, in the city of Kalamaria (Greece).

Dr. Miriam Pirra, Researcher at Politecnico di Torino

Dr. Pirra will provide concrete examples of how it is possible to exploit the data collected through the tools at municipality level. She will focus on the results of a pilot study in the city of Turin to show benefits and applicability of the data collection tools in the development of transport measures in European cities.

Ms. Mireia Calvo, Project Manager at ITENE

Ms. Calvo will provide an Outlook on Impact and usability

The webinar will be complemented by an e-learning course.  More information about the e-learning course will follow soon.
