Meeting Objectives: Exchange and discuss ideas on urban computing, a path to handle big data (typically originating from many personal devices).

Meeting Outcome: The approaches to deal with time-dependent, user-specific, and self- adjusting driving directions – initially addressed toward Beijing’s taxi drivers – reveals that optimization potentials discovered are methodologically quite similar to optimization of Internet traffic in overlays, since the Internet traffic generated “equals” individual taxi routes and the ISP’s network topology in use “equals” the road layout of a city, here Beijing’s city map.

Meeting Impact on SmartenIT: The use of respective trajectories (originally provided in the driving directions case by GPS-based data) potentially driven by ISP measurement points could benefit a smarter traffic management – to be investigated in detail on the how.
