University of Toronto - Engineering

The University of Toronto’s Transportation Research Institute and OCAD University have announced the launch of a research study called iCity 2.0: Urban Data Science for Future Mobility. iCity 2.0 is a four-year initiative that builds on the five-year iCity project that concluded in 2020. It will focus on preparing for population growth by using data science to inform urban transportation systems and livable “complete communities.” The project will focus on challenges such as managing risks and benefits of mobility services, developing tools and concepts to plan, build, and evaluate communities, and reallocating surface transportation network capacity. The project received $3.14M in funding from the Ontario Research Fund, as well as matching funds from institutions and industry.
