I cannot begin to count the times I have sat behind the wheel of my car fuming about the traffic and delays. As with most similarly situated people, I have not done anything about it. But, according to a recent article by in Technology Review, a hero may have emerged.
Christian Bruggeman, while in a London cafe with friends wondered what would happen if traffic flows could be redirected in a way that maximized traffic flows along all possible routes. Mr. Bruggeman then took the essential next step and, together with two of his friends, created a new Windows App called Greenway, which aims to let users avoid traffic jams and get from point to point in the shortest possible time.
For readers interested in further detail on this new app, the full article can be read in Rachel Metz’ article in the July issue of Technology Review.
