Mobility case studies
Our collaboration with Positium on the estimation of Annual Average Daily Traffic (AADT) using machine learning and mobile positioning data has been extremely successful and has significantly improved our ability to make informed decisions regarding infrastructure investments and improvements.- Reimo Tarkiainen, Head of Department, Transport Administration
Mobile phone data enabled Tartu to create a demand-based bus route network by seeing where and when people commute on a daily basis.- Raimond Tamm, Deputy Mayor of Tartu
Positium was able to convert mobile phones into people and people into vehicles. In our own study, we were able to cover traffic counts in a few places, measured over a week, together with a survey of 1,500 vehicles. For the latter part, we had to physically stop the cars and ask them questions. At the same time, Positium generated 800M movement vectors from a year’s worth of data. And they did it much quicker and without any extra burden to the people being surveyed. It filled in all the gaps of our traffic survey.

They understand the General Statistical Business Process Model (GSBPM), Quality Assurance Framework (QAF), Tourism Manual (IRTS2008) and Balance of Payment Manual (BPM6) for Travel component and how these are applied in the business process of the Statistical Office. Moreover, they also open in discussion with BPS staffs and share their knowledge and experience on the use of mobile positioning data.

Population case studies
The key question in preparing for and resolving crises is the number of people who may be in danger and require assistance. In order to plan the necessary resources and make the right decisions, we need increasingly better tools to estimate the number of people in the affected area in these emergencies.
For that reason, mobile positioning data is essential for us when executing wise and effective responses to a wide range of crises, such as forest fires, natural and chemical disasters.
Positium’s software solution allows us to do that and represents a major improvement in our ability to quickly generate an effective response. Positium has been an excellent partner in future proofing our organisation and ensuring we operate on the cutting edge of technology.
