Our Partners

Motus Science is partnering with leading experts in the fields of artificial intelligence, data science, behaviour change, mobile sensors, biomechanics, brain science and chronic diseases.

Together, we are developing revolutionary technology that represents the world’s first integration of health, human behaviour, transport and planning sciences.

The Problems

Health, policy and infrastructure decisions are still largely based on inaccurate, unreliable and incomplete data. This data contributes to poorly planned cities, which in-turn leads to sedentary lifestyles, congestion, and a reliance on personal vehicles.

AIR POLLUTION

90%

of people in the world live with unhealthy air quality.

PHYSICAL INACTIVITY

4TH

leading risk factor for global mortality.

CLIMATE CHANGE

15%

of emissions come from cars alone.

UNAFFORDABLE COSTS

$6T

yearly US$ costs in transport infrastructure

ROAD SAFETY

#1

cause of death for children.

CONGESTION

300B

US$ costs in the United States.

Introducing Motus

Motus Science creates insights to imagine a better future for people and the environment. We tap into the intelligence of devices to understand people’s movement patterns and simplify cumbersome data collection processes with no conscious user action.

Our adaptive artificial intelligence platform detects what people do and what influences their choices. We apply deep neural networks and machine learning to discover where, when, how and why people travel.

COLLECT

Accurate, high-fidelity, fine-grain and person-level movement data from smartphone sensors (GPS, accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer).

ANALYTICS

Machine learning and statistical models aggregate movement, behavioural and environmental patterns for spatio-temporal analysis at individual and population levels.

INSIGHTS

Unprecedented insights to empower people, organisations and communities to make healthy, smart, sustainable and cost-effective decisions.

We are here to help you move
better and move forward.

Applications

Our goal is to help solve some of the oldest and most fundamental challenges facing people and societies around the world.

HEALTH

We identify realistic alternatives for people to be more physically active as part of their daily routine without setting time aside for exercise - the gift of time.

Motus Science provides:

  • Individual capacity and routine analysis
  • Personalised and achievable wellness recommendations
  • Health monitoring and illness detection

TRANSPORT

We identify new opportunities to create, redesign and manage urban and transport systems, and influence travel behaviour.

Motus Science provides:

  • User mobility data collection at a fraction of the cost
  • Collective behaviour and decision making analysis
  • Trend analysis, insights, and recommendations
