Road traffic can be monitored by means of static sensors and derived from floating car data, i.e., reports from a sub-set of vehicles. These approaches suffer from a number of technical and economical limitations. Alternatively, we propose to leverage the mobile cellular network as a ubiquitous mobility sensor. We show how vehicle travel times and road congestion can be inferred from anonymized signaling data collected from a cellular mobile network. While other previous studies have considered… CONTINUE READING
