Probe data from vehicles is one of various types of data that concerns traffic and traffic flow. The corresponding GPS-based trajectories allow various types of analyses, but especially the combination with other data like vehicle-based LiDAR or weather data opens up new research opportunities in data correction, pattern detection, and visualization. Both the volume and the heterogeneity of the data poses challenges that can be addressed with an algorithmic approach.
The overall aim of this project is to use computational geometry to provide an algorithmic basis for traffic analysis and traffic visualization. We will analyse speed patterns that arise in trajectory data in the context of road intersections, weather, visibility, land cover, and various other data sets. The focus is on modelling, efficient algorithms, provable properties and optimality of the output. We are also interested in visualizations of abstract data like traffic flow within the context of 3D city environments, to discover to what extent the 3D context can be exploited without obscuring the flow data. The project team consists of researchers from the 'Applied Geometric Algorithms' group at TU Eindhoven and from the chair 'Computational Geometry and its Application' at Utrecht University.
We collaborate with two private and one public partner: HERE, Fugro, and the NDW. Via our partners we will have access to vast amounts of traffic and context data, such as more than one billion real time vehicle probes every day, 3D city models, and data collected every minute at 25.000 sites on 8.000 km of roads in the Netherlands.
