Department of Automatic Control and Systems Engineering

About the Project

This project aims at mapping the transport enabled connectivity of the city economy. Using traffic data from Sheffield City Council and insights from the census, this project will draw a picture of mobility within Sheffield an across the City Region.

The Network abstraction allows for the identification of critical nodes and links in the city fabric whereas the dynamics can be identified through the timeseries data.

The project would deliver a modelling framework to complement and is some aspect advance the random walk assumption used to model the interaction between economic actors.
