EMERALDS Webinar: Extreme-scale Urban Mobility Data Analytics as a Service

EMERALDS Webinar: Extreme-scale Urban Mobility Data Analytics as a Service
10 November 2023 10:00 - 10 November 2023 11:00

Unlocking the Power of Urban Mobility Data 

In today's fast-paced, hyper-connected world, data serves as the driving force behind intelligent decision-making in European cities. Imagine a scenario where sensors and smart devices are distributed across the city, continuously feeding data to the cloud. With innovative methods of urban transportation emerging, this equates to an abundance of data.

The EMERALDS project aims to develop an urban data-oriented Mobility Analytics as a Service (MAaaS) toolset. This will exploit the untapped potential of extreme urban mobility data and, as a result, contribute to improved decision-making in urban mobility. It will equip stakeholders with the necessary tools to address environmental and operational challenges.

With this inaugural webinar, EMERALDS seeks to raise awareness about the project's outputs and the services and tools it is going to implement.

The three use cases will demonstrate the real-world potential in three key locations: The Hague, Rotterdam, and Riga.
