Ongoing Challenges

Urban analytics represents a fundamental pillar of the work that is developed every day by NOVA Cidade – Urban Analytics Lab

On this page, you can access some of the dashboards developed for the different partners of NOVA Cidade – Urban Analytics Lab and which we share with the public here.

Parking

Identification of incidence points of road accidents and their correlation with other factors

Problem: The existence of road accidents, although directly affecting and involving road users, does not necessarily have to depend on them for their occurrence. External factors can affect, provide or increase their occurrence as long as they are able to produce changes in the conditions of perception, naturally expected, by users.

Expected results: This unique global indicator for the municipality, in addition to introducing a holistic component in the global perception of the city, allows enhancing the promotion of sustainable mobility, correlating over time with global indicators of other means of transport. In addition to the global single indicator, it is intended to have indicators for the main roads in the city.

Creation of general traffic indicator and indicators for each of the main entry routes into the city

Problem: The characterization of traffic in the municipality, using a single global indicator, is undoubtedly a determining factor for correlation with other domains, both in terms of management and administration. In addition to the global single indicator for traffic characterization, the perception of the state of the main entry routes into Lisbon as well as the main city roads, in addition to being the basis for allocating the global indicator, allow for the assessment of traffic status alone. on the outskirts of the municipality, with implications for the behavior of roads managed by other road operators, and whose municipality does not directly control it.

Expected results: This unique global indicator for the municipality, in addition to introducing a holistic component in the global perception of the city, allows enhancing the promotion of sustainable mobility, correlating over time with global indicators of other means of transport. In addition to the global single indicator, it is intended to have indicators for the main roads in the city.
