TRAFFIC4CAST: Traffic Map Movie Forecasting
The dense and growing populations of cities face a mobility and sustainability challenge. The TRAFFIC4CAST competition reaches right to the heart of that issue. It challenges competitors to use a unique data set to understand complex traffic systems, to be able to make predictions about future states of such systems.
HERE Technologies is working in partnership with IARAI to provide industrial-scale real-world probe data for the competition. The data takes the form of unique high-resolution traffic map movies, covering the cities of Berlin, Istanbul, and Moscow.
The traffic map movies were derived from positions reported by a large fleet of probe vehicles over the course of a year, and are based on an unprecedented number of over 100 billion probe points. Each movie frame summarizes GPS trajectories mapped to spatio-temporal cells, transforming traffic forecasting into a ‘scene completion’ task.
