Thanks to the latest advances in IoT, transportation professionals currently operate in an extremely data-rich environment, compared to the environment of a few decades ago. This has resulted in the coining of a new term to characterize the resulting data sets namely “Big Data”. Big Data involves massive volumes of data, from a variety of sources, being generated at a very high velocity or in real-time. Big Data Analytics or Informatics is the mining of Big Data for useful and actionable information.
In transportation, Big Data comes from a variety of sources. These include
