Research Projects

Mattersoft takes actively part in various national and international research projects that develop mainly new and diverse real-time services and applications, especially for public transport. Here are some examples of the projects we have been working on.


Internet of Things is a national SHOK-research project that started in 2012 and ended in 2016. The project focused on researching the Internet of Things and the possibilities for business in it. Mattersoft took part in a work package that focused on testing different solutions in real life. Mattersoft led a task that focused on intelligent transport systems in daily travel both in private and public transport. This task included a pilot set up in the City of Tampere, where the focus was on the real-time traffic conditions monitoring using connected systems. The project was coordinated by DIGILE and funded by Tekes.

E-MOSION is an international research project that was part of the AAL-program. The project focused on developing mobile services that support elderly people to handle their daily activities that require leaving the house. This enables users to live more independently and more safely at home longer. In the project diverse information services were developed that take into notice real-time situations (e.g. public transport) and current conditions. This helps the users plan their daily activities by providing valuable information from a single source. The diverse information services are created by combining information from a number of sources through different sensors and algorithms. The project started in July 2012 and ended in June 2015.

In the Live+Gov- project the objective was in bringing policy makers closer to real life of citizens by using mobile applications. In the project, a mobile application was developed, through which citizens can express specifically their needs and opinions in various governmental plans, such as urban planning, urban maintenance and public transportation. Through the application the citizens will receive real-time information from authorities regarding current plans and issues. The application can utilize a variety of different sensors in smart phones. In Live+Gov, Mattersoft’s role focused on the public transport pilot that was set up in Helsinki, Finland. The FP7-project started in February 2012 and ended in January 2015.

DiCoMa, a research project was set up by 40 partners form eight different countries. The goal of the project was to ensure effective management of large disasters and complex emergencies by providing a set of tools that aim to improve the effectiveness of decision makers in dealing with disasters by better training and in situ support in the field. This ITEA2-research project started in October 2011 and ended in September 2014.

PRONTO is a FP7 research project, partially funded by the European Commission. The project started in March 2009 and ended in February 2012. The project focused on developing tools that support decision making, detecting events in real-time through a platform. The platform collects real-time sensor data and provides significant real-time information about current activities and operations in two separate use cases: emergency and rescue operations and public transportation.
