The fifth general meeting of the EU project "Leveraging Big Data for Managing Transport Operations" (LeMO) was held in Sogndal on September 5th and 6th, organized by Western Norway Research Institute.
The participants came from several countries and researches future use of big data to predict problems and analyze issues in transport.

Project LeMO received EUR 1.4 million in 2017 and is a EU Horizon 2020 project. At launch, Akerkar emphasized the practical benefits one expects to get from this research.
- The vast amount of relevant data that can be used to foresee when there is the greatest need for public transport or how cyclists will behave on new cycle paths.
