DEUSTO

DEUSTO will participate in TIMON through the DeustoTech Mobility Unit. The activity of the unit is focused on the research of ICT technologies for the application in transport, mobility and logistics sectors, contributing to the development of Intelligent Transport Systems (ITS) which are capable of improving the mobility of people and goods, making it more sustainable, smart and comfortable, using the latest technologies in the field of Advanced Communications Systems and Artificial Intelligent algorithms, cooperative networks (V2V, V2I, V2X), implementation of multimodal route planners, goods tracking and enhanced logistics platforms. Besides, on the recent years many advances has been done on the research of seamless positioning and activity monitoring of people with MEMs, getting promising results. Among the techniques that have been researched on, are Kalman filters and Bayesian techniques.

Role in the project

DEUSTO is the project coordinator and will contribute to the development of the artificial intelligence techniques and the modelling/prediction methods needed to obtain high accuracy algorithms for traffic congestion prediction, traffic flow estimation, route optimisation and determination of levels of risk in the cases of use of study. DEUSTO will also carry out dissemination activities and foster exploitation discussions and agreements.
