The workshop on technology, tools and applications around passive and sensor travel data is summarized in this paper. Such data requires protocols for collection, storing/retrieving, sharing and processing; as well as the need for validation methods and multi-disciplinary work. Traditional surveys can complement passive and sensor data to aid a deeper understanding of travel behaviour. Passive data is particularly beneficial for planning long-distance travel and freight transport. While access to massive data collected by licensed operators should be guaranteed, maintaining data privacy and cultural sensitivity is a priority.
