Session Track: Big Data and Open Data
ITS applications based around Big Data can help the movement of people and goods through real-time awareness of flows, transport service timetables, and the performance of traffic systems. They may also eliminate vehicle breakdowns by delivering preventive maintenance warnings, and could also reduce unnecessary journeys by delivering up-to-the-minute logistics information. Successfully harnessing Big Data will maximize the availability of transport assets, enhance services to increase revenue and manage capacity, and improve the end-to-end customer experience. But to turn promise into successful delivery, key issues such as personal privacy, data ownership, access to data, and revenue sharing must be considered by policymakers and implemented by suppliers.
