Urban traffic gathers increasing interest as cities becomebigger, crowded and “smart”. We present a system for heterogeneous stream processing and crowdsourcing supporting intelligent urban traffic management. Complex events relatedto traffic congestion (trends) are detected from heterogeneous sources involving fixed sensors mounted on intersections and mobile sensors mounted on public transport vehicles. To deal with data veracity, a crowdsourcing component handles and resolves sensor disagreement. Furthermore, to deal with datasparsity, a traffic modelling component offers information in areas with low sensor coverage. We demonstrate the system with a real-world use-case from Dublin city, Ireland.
