HABITS (funded by ESRC)

The aim of the project is to utilise new generation mobile phone ‘Track and Trace’ (T&T) data in a transport policy context and explore the challenges, methodologies and policy implications related to its use in reducing individual health burdens. The project will research new methods and tools to investigate the cross-referencing and integration of real-time T&T data with existing and emerging databases such as pollution data and new approaches to modelling health impacts arising from exposure and the individual patterns of travel activity.
