Mobility is a social aspect that must always be planned for serving society, while optimizing economic aspects and caring about other such as environmental, visual and noise impact. Then, modelling the mobility is necessary and indispensable for the society development. In the past, the data necessary to do so was obtained from surveys associated to quinquennial census. Nowadays, there are different data set sources, but all them too aggregated to model the mobility. Autoritat del Transport Metropolit`a (ATM) obtained disaggregated Origin-Destination matrices per transport mode, which modeled the mobility in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona in 2010. These matrices show the number of displacement done in a weekday in that year from each origin to each destination (the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona is divided into 582 different zones), and the transport mode used. From here on, this project has two main purposes, both focused on the mobility in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona. First, determining the mobility in the Metropolitan Area of Barcelona in 2015 by updating the ATM matrices. This is done using different data sources like surveys and traffic counts, and so different methodologies. Second, modelling the mobility. This model is expected to be capable of predicting how mobility will evolve in the near future, in order to serve as a predictor of the consequences that any implementation or change done on the infrastructures or transportation prices could have in the mobility.
