Raphael Dumas presents 'How the City of Toronto Uses Vehicle Probe Provider Data for Evaluation, Monitoring, and Prioritization'
Please join us for the in-person seminar by Raphael Dumas on Friday, October 14, from 11 AM to 12 PM at the ITS lab, Sandford Fleming Building, 10 King's College Road, 3rd floor, Room SF3103.
Vehicle Probe Provider data come from navigation apps providing directions that incorporate real-time traffic. In order for drivers to get routed with up to date information, they provide their location data so the service can monitor traffic. These companies also sell this traffic data to government agencies for active traffic management and also to use for other projects. This presentation will give an overview of the data, its limitations, how it has been used in Transportation Services, and a description of an upcoming OpenData release.
