Clearing Up The Road Ahead

from the traffic-mess dept

A good article in MIT’s Technology Review about things people are working on to improve traffic reporting. Some companies are testing some funky ways to measure how traffic is going based on people using cell phones to measure where they are and how fast they’re going. Others are trying to use those toll paying things (like EZPass in NY and FastPass in CA) that you put on your windshield. Of course, the big question is whether or not there are privacy issues to be concerned with.
