The LiiDi2 project will create a model for mobility digital twins and develop new methods for data collection.
The (LiiDi2) project, or ‘Liikkumisen digitaalinen kaksonen palveluiden mahdollistajana’ (mobility digital twin as an enabler of services), will create new business by developing a digital twin for mobility and models for collecting and utilising related data. The project will also conduct data collection pilots and develop innovative acquisition models.
The objective of the LiiDi2 project is to improve cities’ capabilities to react to and meet challenges with changes in mobility and traffic and create the prerequisites for developing mobility innovations. The project will expand the current service offering and improve the level of traffic and transport services for residents and businesses.
This is achieved through developing and expanding the knowledge base, creating a model for the digital twin for mobility, developing and piloting new data collection methods and developing innovative data acquisition models.
