An exploration of mobile data: towards proximity based passenger sensing on public transport

November 3, 2017

Congratulations to Christian Tonge who has won the runners-up prize for his dissertation titled "An exploration of mobile data: towards proximity based passenger sensing on public transport".

Christian graduated from Liverpool University in summer 2017 and spent the summer months seconded into Movement Strategies’ office, delivering his dissertation. This was organised as part of the Consumer Data Research Centre (CDRC) programme which seconds MSc students to businesses who provide access to new and exciting data sources. Christian used Location Sciences data to identify bus trips to and from Oxford Street in London. CDRC received a total of 160 applications in 2017, so we’re extremely proud that Christian has won a prize for his dissertation. The prize was awarded by Lord David Willetts at the Data Users Group, held at the Royal Society on Friday 20 October 2017.

Simon Babes, Movement Strategies’s Managing Director said; “Christian worked hard all summer to produce new methodologies, using an exciting GPS data set provided by our partners Locations Sciences to extract valuable insights. The prize is well deserved and I’m also very pleased that Christian has decided to join Movement Strategies, following on from his successful secondment and dissertation."
