This paper presents the latest developments of EU Commission Joint Research Centre platform TEMA (Transport tEchnology and Mobility Assessment). The platform relies on databases of vehicle driving patterns collected with navigation systems, and it is used since 2012 for supporting transport policy in the EU, exploring the effects of the deployment of electrified vehicles in terms of usability, energy requirements and infrastructural design. The results includes travel behaviour analyses of

The data accounts for 2.57 billion records, equivalent to approximately 139 million kilometres driven by 632,186 monitored vehicles. This work aims at being a first attempt for a continental scale pilot study of travel behaviour in the EU, showing the potential of big data to shape the next generation low-carbon transport policies.
