Mobility plays a central role in various related activities we conduct, especially in work, commerce, industry and leisure. The study of mobility for different purposes (e.g., economics, public services, academic study) should be done in a systematic way since from the scientific point of view it is the most fundamental issue that must be studied, so proper solutions can be proposed. Thus, this project aims to investigate how the mobility of mobile entities occurs in urban environments in order to design algorithms, protocols, applications and services that are appropriate for both the scenario we currently have and smart cities. The Urban Computing Mobility Project: Characterization, Modeling and Applications (Mobilis) innovates and advances the state of the art by researching key issues individually and in an integrated way considering different aspects in a much broader way than we currently have.
