TAPASCologne vehicular mobility dataset.
Based on the data made available by the Institute of Transportation Systems at the German Aerospace Center (ITS-DLR), the dataset aims at reproducing, with a high level of realism, car traffic in the greater urban area of the city of Cologne, Germany. To that end, different state-of-art data sources and simulation tools are brought together, so to cover all of the specific aspects required for a proper characterization of vehicular traffic:
The traffic demand information on the macroscopic traffic flows across the Cologne urban area (i.e., the O/D matrix) is derived through the Travel and Activity PAtterns Simulation (TAPAS) methodology;
The resulting synthetic trace of the car traffic in a the city of Cologne covers a region of 400 square kilometers for a period of 24 hours, comprising more than 700.000 individual car trips. More information is available on the project website at http://kolntrace.project.citi-lab.fr/ .
