Technological advances and research on methodologies have dramatically increased the availability and quality of automated data that can be used to develop applications that enhance the planning and operations of public transportation systems. Automated Data Systems include: Advanced Fare Collection (AFC), Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL), Automatic Passenger Counting (APC), GTFS-RT, on-board video surveillance, but also new sources of passive data obtained from mobile devices, social media and other Internet of Things (IoT) sensors. A series of workshops have been held in recent years to explore both methodological challenges and potential applications, including: Gifu, Japan (2014), Boston, United States (2016), Santiago, Chile (2017), Brisbane, Australia (2018), and Paris, France (2019) .
The next Symposium will be held August 11-13, 2020 in Toronto, Canada, and we are planning to place more emphasis on applications, and substantially broaden the discussion between practitioners and researchers interested in the use of public transportation automated data.Find out more »
