Real Time Rome (2006)

A large crowd is assembling around the Olympic Stadium

Real Time Rome aggregates data from cell phones (obtained using Telecom Italia Lochness platform), buses and taxis in Rome to better understand urban dynamics in real time. By revealing the pulse of the city, the project aims to show how technology can help individuals make more informed decisions about their environment. In the long run, will it be possible to reduce the inefficiencies of present day urban systems and open the way to a more sustainable urban future?

How do people occupy and move through certain areas of the city during spe- cial events? This software shows the pre-recorded movements of mobile phone users during two important events in Rome: the World Cup final match between Italy and France on July 9, 2006 and celebrations at the arrival in Rome of the national team, and Ma- donna’s concert on August 6, 2006.
