Berlin Mobility Data Hub

Description of the project

The aim of the "Berlin Mobility Data Hub" project is to create a digital data and knowledge platform for the systematic merging of Berlin-related databases of passenger and freight transport, with special consideration of gaining knowledge about the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic on Berlin's transport system.

Based on a extensive identification of relevant data sources and the analysis of existing data-related needs and problems of the complex Berlin traffic landscape, the relevant actors for the provision of traffic-related databases should be won.

The data hub not only intends to integrate quantitative live data from public and private transport providers, mobile phone or navigation operators, but also to integrate qualitative databases and historical longitudinal data. In addition to the function of information and the provision of data, integrated analysis functions should generate direct added value.

Funded by the Berlin University Alliance as part of the excellence strategy of the federal and state governments, the "Berlin Mobility Data Hub" controlled by the TU Berlin (mobility research cluster in the field of work theory, technology and participation) and the FU Berlin (field of business informatics) is intended to be a central knowledge and orientation platform for research, public institutions, politics and business, which should be able to answer or develop existing and future questions of transport with the help of the hub.
