KTH–Royal Institute of Technology

Researchers at KTH gather real-time traffic data from a variety of sources such as GPS from large numbers of vehicles, radar sensors on motorways, congestion charging, weather, etc. Collected data is now flowing into IBM InfoSphere Streams software—a unique software tool that analyzes large volumes of streaming, real-time data, both structured and unstructured. Analyzing large volumes of streaming data in real time is leading to smarter, more efficient and environmentally friendly traffic in urban areas.
