The UMO facility has been used or is being used in several projects.


MObility during and after COrona LOckDOwn (abbreviated as MOCOLODO) is a research project, addressing urgent (policy) questions about mobility in corona times. The project unites researchers from Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, University of Twente, Delft University of Technology, Utrecht University, and University of Groningen. The main questions that MOCOLODO addresses are:

  • What can we learn about mobility behaviour and its determinants during lockdown and relaxation?
  • Based on this knowledge, how can we advise governments on flexible and effective management of mobility during lockdown and relaxation?
  • How can this be brought into line with long-term sustainability goals in (urban) mobility?

Campus Mobility Dashboard

One of the most important measures taken to prevent the spread of the coronavirus is to maintain a distance of 1.5 metres from each other. To see how effective these measures are, and which measures should be taken when, we need to know how people move around and how this changes over time. To collect data on mobility on and around the TU Delft campus, a dedicated sensor network has been installed and combined with publicly available data such as the opening times of bridges and real-time locations of trains, buses and trams. The combined information is visualised in the Campus Mobility Dashboard, a digital twin of the university campus.
