Event Details

Vast amounts of data flow through our transport system every day. While data-driven innovations, from the digital twin to the latest AI solutions, promise to tackle acute mobility challenges, there is currently some circumspection about the specific problems that data are helping to solve. Meanwhile, many businesses and public institutions are eager to harness the potential of data, but lack the capacity to access, analyse and interpret it. This calls for a reality check on the added value that data can bring to the sustainable transformation of our mobility systems.

In this Mobility Talks, experts will discuss case studies and best practices of data use in urban mobility, shedding light on the current reality of data use in urban mobility and assessing its potential for the future.
