Urban (smart) mobility is still a dream. Which is odd because data for optimizing the flow of traffic is available. In abundance, in fact. Moovit, an Israeli startup, works with local public transport companies and with its own community of Mooviters, who enter as yet unavailable data into Moovit’s systems. As of now, around 330 million people around the world use Moovit. Data on pedestrian traffic can be captured by smartphones, hotspots or GPS. Above all, municipal administrations and transport companies have valuable data at their disposal – which is often kept in inaccessible silos (in a business context, this would probably be called “intellectual property”). Data from sensors (such as induction loops and cameras), operating data from control stations. And now, another silo has come into the picture, thanks to connected cars.
