Abstract 

Dataset of mobility traces of taxi cabs in Rome, Italy.

This dataset contains mobility traces of taxi cabs in Rome, Italy. It contains GPS coordinates of approximately 320 taxis collected over 30 days. Related publication: Marco Bonola, Lorenzo Bracciale, Pierpaolo Loreti, Raul Amici, Antonello Rabuffi, and Giuseppe Bianchi. 'Opportunistic communication in smart city: Experimental insight with small-scale taxi fleets as data carriers'. Ad Hoc Networks, February 2016.

date/time of measurement start: 2014-02-01

date/time of measurement end: 2014-03-02

collection environment: 320 taxi drivers that work in the center of Rome. Traces present the positions of drivers, collected every 7 seconds.

sanitization: Driver names have been replaced with an id.

limitation: To retrieve the position, we used the getAccuracy function of Android LocationManager objects. We filter out the positions if their precision is less than 20m.

These datasets are part of Community Resource for Archiving Wireless Data (CRAWDAD). CRAWDAD began in 2004 at Dartmouth College as a place to share wireless network data with the research community. Its purpose was to enable access to data from real networks and real mobile users at a time when collecting such data was challenging and expensive. The archive has continued to grow since its inception, and starting in summer 2022 is being housed on IEEE DataPort.
