Smart Data for Mobility

We made analytics and use of smart data comprehensible.

CeBIT 2017

The german rail network is displayed on an interactive map. Live data from unstructured sources like social media, RSS feeds and website is matched with structured information from the German Knowledge Graph, stops, routes and timetables of public transport as well as libraries and constants like time and places. The result of each relevant match is a traffic or company event (like accidents or strikes) that is displayed on the map.

The demonstration began its roadshow at the CeBIT in 2016, followed by the acatech 2016 and CeBIT 2017.

On a big touch screen the viewer can experience how different data sources are connecting in real-time. One of the future use cases will be for companies to quickly identify problems of their supply chain (e.g. an accident) and enable them to take action. This leads to the possibility of real-time and even predictive risk analytics and a foresighted and flexible supply chain management.

With the technology program “Smart Data – Innovation with data” the german federal ministry of economics and energy (BMWi) supports selected flagship initiatives that develop innovative services for big data.
