Last Mile is a project focused on visualizing information relevant to logistic operations in different contexts, collecting and displaying urban and corporate information. Last Mile is composed of three different platforms: Km2, Loopa and Compass.

The goal of km2 is to characterize areas of some of the world’s major megacities and observe their dynamics and conditions to obtain valuable information about factors that have influence over urban logistics performance. This is done using system designed for this purpose that allows easy visualization of the data.

Loopa is a tool that allows the user to map and observe the operations of a distribution network of a company. The tool allows the easy visualization of data and provides analytical insight that enables the observer to understand the behavior of the customers and the demand in the specified region.

Compass is a tool whose main objective is to process and analyze GPS data in order to find out statistical information as well as to display the information in a friendly way. The user is able to have a detailed view of the behavior of the trips, trucks and fleets.


About Us

The team, directed by Dr. Edgar Blanco is composed of multidisciplinary and multicultural students. Two-thirds of the team traveled to different megacities to understand their unique characteristics and collect data. The remaining third of the team students collaborate to process, analyze and visualize the information presented.
