The Mobility DataHub is our complex IT-infrastructure to gather, manage, analyse and visualise large amounts of mobility data.
Our main attention is paid to innovative mobility services such as shared mobility or electric mobility. Movements of shared vehicles, spatial demand for bike-sharing, density of charging infrastructure, and number of EV registrations are typical examples. The information is gained from various data sources such as free accessible web-data, web-mining, smartphone tracking, or log-files from apps. Web-based applications an (semi-)automated survey methods enable a continuous growth of our data-basis. Data is extractable on a sub-daily frequency and is scalable on a global level.
The mixture of data sources and the broad set of mobility related data allows the deviation of key indicators to monitor the change of our mobility systems and behaviour. Computationally intensive simulations enable the extrapolation of data for the current status and allows first steps towards a forecast of specific elements of this change.
