We are working on articles!

The Mobility Data Hub project team is actively working on two scientific articles.

One article will present the current state of development of our mobility data platform, following the Design Resaerch Approach (DSR) to design and evaluate the platform. This article will be submitted for „17. Internationale Tagung Wirtschaftsinformatik“ (WI22, Feb 2022) under the thematic track of „ICT and Responsible Consumption as well as Production“.

A second article will illustrate the feasiblity of our Mobility Data Hub by an exemplary analysis of the effects induced by the COVID-19 pandemic on Berlin citizens‘ mobility behavior. Possessing an extensive source of longitudinal mobility data, we will explore modal, spatial and behavioral changes of mobility patterns within pandemic times. The article will be submitted to a renowned Open Access transport studies journal.

Acquisition of longitudinal data set (Covid-19 and Mobility in Berlin)

The project team has acquired a highly interesting data set consisting of longitudinal data from individual Berlin-based app users who tracked their daily mobility with the help of the MotionTag technology. These data comprise of about 200.000 user days in the period 01/2019-03/2021 that allow us a) to analyse users‘ change of mobility patterns during the Corona crisis, and b) to feed the Berlin Mobility Data Hub with highly relevant data. In short, besides the analytical value of gaining more insights how Berliners changed their everyday mobility in pandemic times, the acquisition of this data set will act as a showcase for illustrating the functional potential of the hub itself.
