Usage of Smartphone Data to Derive an Indicator for Collaborative Mobility between Individuals

The potential of geospatial big data has been drawing attention for a few years. Despite the larger and larger market penetration of portable technologies (nomadic and wearable devices like smartphones and smartwatches), their opportunities for travel behavior analysis are still relatively unexplored. The main objective of our study is to extract the human mobility patterns […]

LuST-LTE: A Simulation Package for Pervasive Vehicular Connectivity

Recent technological advances in communication technology have provided new ways to understand human mobility. Connected vehicles with their rising market penetration rate are particularly representative of this trend. They become increasingly interesting not only as sensors but also as participants in Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) applications. More specifically, their pervasive connectivity to cellular networks enables […]
