## 1. Introduction

## 2. Overview of the Previous Research

## 3. Research Methodology

#### 3.1. The Methodology Overview

- B is an indicator of the duration of the journey for each individual trip;
- $t{\left(i\right)}_{orig}$ is a time denotement in which the user activity was recorded at the base station and identified as the trip origin;
- $t{\left(i\right)}_{dest}$ is a time denotement in which the user activity was recorded at the base station and identified as the trip destination;
- $\Delta t\left(i,j\right)$ is the travel time between two base stations.

- $D1\left(i,j\right)$ is the speed of movement for each individual journey within a timeframe;
- $C\left(i,j\right)$ is the Euclidean distance between base station pairs;
- $B\left(i,j\right)$ is the duration of the journey, for each individual trip within a timeframe.

- $A\left(i,j\right)$ is the total number of the recorded (registered) trips between the individual base station pairs (trip matrix);
- $Trip\_ID\left(i,j\right)$ is a trip between two base stations in an appropriate timeframe, all assumptions being met.

- $\overline{{B}_{i,j}}$ is the median value of all travel times between each pair of base stations over a timeframe;
- $B\left(i,j\right)$ is the value of the trip duration for each individual trip in a timeframe;
- $n$ is the number of trips registered between each base station pair in a timeframe.

- $norm{A}_{\left(i,j\right)}$ is the normalized value of the number of trips for the corresponding base station pair for all timeframes within one day;
- $norm\overline{{B}_{i,j}}$ is the normalized value of the median trip duration value for the corresponding base station pair for all timeframes within one day;
- $norm{C}_{\left(i,j\right)}$ is the normalized value of the distance indicator for the corresponding base station pair.

- $IM$ is the urban mobility index for the timeframe;
- $pI{M}_{i,j}$ is the partial urban mobility index for the corresponding base station pair within the appropriate timeframe;
- $n$ is the total number of origin and destination pairs for which the mobility assessment was performed.

- ${\alpha}_{i,j}$ is the total mobility share coefficient for each origin and destination pair (base station pair);
- ${A}_{\left(i,j\right)}$ is the value of the trip number indicator in a specific timeframe;
- ${C}_{\left(i,j\right)}$ is the value of the distance indicator for a corresponding base station pair.

#### 3.2. The Relationship between the Mobility Indicators and the Urban Mobility Index Assessment

^{3}), a total number of 27 questions is set.

## 4. Model of the Urban Mobility Index

## 5. The Application of the Urban Mobility Index Estimation Process

#### 5.1. Process Implementation in a Programming Environment

#### 5.2. The Application of the Procedure over a Real-World Dataset

^{2}(30 × 30 km). It is estimated that approximately 1.2 million people live in the area, while approximately 25 million live in the urban agglomeration together with the suburban settlements [73]. The entire urban agglomeration (together with suburban settlements) covers approximately 20,000 m

^{2}. The dataset used for the analysis consists of 38,218,717 telecommunication activity records for one characteristic day, for 24 h. It contains data on the telecommunications activities of approximately 450,000 users, representing 37.5% of the population in the area. On average, the record contains 85 telecommunication activities per user on a typical day. According to the number of the base stations, the coverage area is divided into 480 urban areas. The average surface area covered by one base station is 2.69 km

^{2}. The shortest distance between the base station pairs is 0.007 km (the distance between the base station 475 and 476), with a total of 12 base station pairs less than 100 meters apart, and 1345 base station pairs within a kilometer distance. The longest distance is 42.9 km (the distance between base stations 36 and 476). The average distance between all base station pairs in the network is 1.81 km. Next, is the migration identification process. A total of 2,133,369 migrations were identified in the analyzed dataset. By applying the filter, all ineligible migrations were eliminated, leaving those longer than 1 km, lasting between 10 and 60 min, and with an average speed less than 100 km/h. As a result of the filtering, almost 95% of the identified migrations were removed, i.e., from 91% to 97% per timeframe, leaving 110,902 migrations. The following is the calculation of the only remaining indicator (medium travel time), normalization of the values of all indicators and the calculation of the partial urban mobility indices for each base station pair. The values of the partial urban mobility index for one timeframe is shown in Figure 14. Using the calculated values of the partial urban mobility indices, the calculation of the urban mobility index for each timeframe is carried out. The values of the urban mobility index by timeframes for the basic dataset and for the validation dataset are shown in Table 6. The validation of the model uses a dataset consisting of 20% of the total dataset and shows that deviations are possible in the range from 3% to 11%, relative to the value obtained through using the basic dataset. The deviation within seven timeframes does not exceed the value of 7%, and in only one frame has a value greater than 11%. The average deviation for all timeframes is 6%, showing the model reliability of 94%.
