In August 2015, the predict.io team started its project together with the European Commission, called SOUTHPARK – Social and Universal Technology Helping to detect arrivals via SDK.
This project is part of Horizon2020, the EU Framework Program for Research and Innovation.
The aim of the project is to fulfill two overall objectives:
- Enable innovative mobility solutions in Europe’s metropolitan areas. This will be achieved when the SDK generates at least a million data points a day for real-time applications as well as business analytics.
- The predict.io team will repeatedly collect and analyze locally deviating data sources to identify, attune and optimize the locally diverging features for its stop detection system. Enhancing and training the existing algorithms by testing and cross-testing large-scale datasets, in the end, generating a self-adopting component that can adjust itself to any type of local mobility situation. This will reduce the adaptation costs and time to localize to new local setting.
