Transport Models and mobile phone data

Mobile phone data provides new opportunities for further research into travel behaviour and transport models that may provide a more solid ground for practical applications and more reliable forecasting. This can help to reduce costs and delays of travel data collection, and also to explore new forms of modelling and monitoring trends.

The DNA of better trip matrices

The traditional travel data collection methods have proven expensive, disruptive and limited, but new technologies have recently allowed to generate mobile phone trip matrices that could potentially overcome many of these constraints as they can provide door-to-door movements based on a device that most people carry with them at all times. So, how does this work?
