The increasing availability of large-scale trajectory data provides us great opportunity to explore them for knowledge discovery in transportation systems using advanced data mining techniques. Nowadays, large number of taxicabs in major metropolitan cities are equipped with a GPS device. Since taxis are on the road nearly twenty four hours a day (with drivers changing shifts), they can now act as reliable sensors to monitor the behavior of traffic. In this article, we use GPS data from taxis… CONTINUE READING
