The Link between AutoMat and BigDataEurope
The BigDataEurope (BDE) project was launched in January 2015. At first sight, it has a lot in common with the AutoMat project – both projects focus on big data and the transport sector. Moreover, both projects aim to help users make better sense of big data by providing platforms, such as Automat’s Vehicle Big Data Marketplace or BDE’s Big Data Integrator Platform. Both projects are now discussing how to leverage data from other sources, such as open data portals, social networks, meteo, and police, to improve their platforms and the provided services.
