Prof. Jan-Dirk Schmöcker talk – crowdsourced data & mobility

We invite you to a lecture by Professor Jan-Dirk Schmöcker entitled: “Utilising crowdsourced data for travel and activity estimation”. The lecture will be held on Monday, March 25 in room 101, building A5. Starting at 11:45 AM.


Prof. Jan-Dirk Schmöcker is an Associate Professor within the Department of Urban Management at Kyoto University. He has published numerous papers as well as co-edited a book titled “Public Transport Planning with Smartcard Data”. He has been involved in numerous international projects, among others, he is currently the PI of a JST and EU co-funded project titled “Deep Learning of Anticipated Urban Mobility Peaks”. In 2022 he received the JSCE “International Activity Cooperation Award” for his contributions to the Japanese Civil Engineering Society.  A major longstanding research topic of his is modelling of passenger behaviour in public transportation networks including aspects such as fare structures, crowding, bunching and real-time information. Jan-Dirk’s current research interests further cover the usage of crowdsourced data for understanding travel behaviour in general and urban tourism in particular. The overall motivation is to induce more sustainable travel patterns within cities and to stimulate a discussion on “transport sufficiency”.


The lecture will be held as part of the seminar of the Department of Transport Systems of the Institute of Transport, which will also include a speech by Dr. Piotr Sawicki entitled “Measuring transport exclusion – practical and methodological insight”.
