The vision and scientific challenges presented in this paper are the objectives of the FET-FP7 project DATASIM. The project aims at providing an entirely new and highly detailed spatio-temporal microsimulation methodology for human mobility, grounded on massive amounts of big data of various types and from various sources, with the goal to forecast the nation-wide consequences of a massive switch to electric vehicles, given the intertwined nature of mobility and power distribution networks.
