Road traffic accidents are among the principal causes of traffic congestion, causing human losses, damages to health and the environment, economic losses and material damages. Studies about traditional road traffic accidents in urban zones represents very high inversion of time and money, additionally, the result are not current. However, nowadays in many countries, the crowdsourced GPS based traffic and navigation apps have emerged as an important source of information to low cost to studies… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Real-time traffic accidents post-impact prediction: Based on crowdsourcing data.
Rethinking Highway Safety Analysis by Leveraging Crowdsourced Waze Data
The authors explore the potential of using crowdsourced Waze incident reports (WIRs) to identify high-risk road segments by proposing a new methodology to eliminate redundant WIRs and using data from an I-35 corridor in North Texas for safety analysis.
Estimating Freeway Level-of-Service Using Crowdsourced Data
The results reveal that using Waze crowdsourced alerts can improve the LOS estimation accuracy by about 10% and provide transportation agencies with a LOS method based on crowdsourced data on different freeway segments, regardless of the availability of traditional fixed location sensors.
Traffic congestion and economic context: changes of spatiotemporal patterns of traffic travel times during crisis and post-crisis periods
A long-term analysis of spatiotemporal traffic congestion patterns in Madrid (Spain), comparing two urban realms: the 2008 economic crisis and the following post-crisis situation, using TomTom Speed Profiles data to assess daily variations in traffic congestion and their changes between both periods, and Twitter data to capture spatial patterns of the daily pulse of the city.


Data mining opportunities in geosocial networks for improving road safety
It is shown that Waze user reports may expose locations plagued with accidents but in lacking police coverage, which may help police departments to improve road safety by relocating the police units to these locations.
Zonification of Heavy Traffic in Mexico City
A cluster analysis is applied to find out the heavy traffic zones in Mexico City using massive data from the Social Navigation Network Waze to help develop accurate prediction models for heavy traffic.
Detección de incidentes de tránsito en Twitter
An approach that combines Machine Learning and Natural Language Processing techniques to detect traffic incidents posted on Twitter is proposed and the viability and effectiveness was evaluated.
The KDD process for extracting useful knowledge from volumes of data
A new generation of computational techniques and tools is required to support the extraction of useful knowledge from the rapidly growing volumes of data, the subject of the emerging field of knowledge discovery in databases (KDD) and data mining.
What is Twitter, a social network or a news media?
This work is the first quantitative study on the entire Twittersphere and information diffusion on it and finds a non-power-law follower distribution, a short effective diameter, and low reciprocity, which all mark a deviation from known characteristics of human social networks.
