Data Driven 2020

Data Driven 2020

Each year the RAC Foundation invites a range of experts to use their analytical skills and specialist tools to interrogate and interpret a whole host of transport-related datasets to provide a better understanding of the way we travel in the UK.

Normally people would meet in person to hear the results, but this year Covid-19 has forced the event online.

The videos found on the RAC website detail information and the contribution made by each project. Topics covered include:

• Travel during lockdown: looking at the local picture
• Car club data: a framework for sharing car club data with councils
• Road casualty statistics: changes to police collected STATS19 crash data
• The power of R: how statistical software means better road safety
• Using machine learning to understand road collisions: identifying areas with similar road crash statistics
• Spot the difference: using computer vision to update road asset registers
• Driven by information: how to harness the benefits of connected vehicles
• Who uses the M25? Where are people coming from and going to?
