From 2021 to 2022
The mobility ecosystem sees the rise of new stakeholders and services (connected and automated vehicles, MaaS, shared mobility). As these new forms of mobility offerings start to appear within cities, so do new ways in which data are being generated, collected, and stored. Successfully integrating disruptive technologies and solutions with the designs of policy makers remains a challenge at current. nuMIDAS is a Horizon 2020 project, led by TML, with the aim of providing insights into what methodological tools, databases, and models are required, and how existing ones need to be adapted or augmented with new data.

The nuMIDAS project, an acronym for New Mobility Data and Solutions Toolkit, falls under the Horizon 2020 programme and is being developed by a European Consortium, composed of nine partners from six countries. In a nutshell, nuMIDAS will:
  • Recognise new and emerging mobility trends.
  • Identify relevant new concepts and variables playing an increasingly important role in transport and mobility analyses.
  • Review and assess a range of options for collecting and using new mobility data, by means of new data collection and management approaches, including new methods and tools to exploit these data, encompassing also Artificial Intelligence / Machine Learning techniques for dealing with Big Data.
The project builds on a distributed selection of case studies in pilot cities to provide a geographic coverage of the EU. The three pilot cities are: Barcelona (Spain), Milano (Italy), and Leuven (Belgium).

TML is the overall project coordinator, and is also responsible for coordinating the work package with the case studies.
