How will Traffic Management Change with the Arrival of the Connected Car?
Advances in the telecommunications field have greatly benefited road users! Thanks to the deployment of digital informants, like smartphones, motorists are now able to circumvent the various types of traffic snarls: road closures, accidents, works crews, demonstrations, etc. Would the tech-savvy motorist even know what the term «traffic jam» means these days? If so, the next generation might be able to erase it from their vocabulary! What's more, users have increasingly become actors in the traffic management process by means of relaying information - at times unbeknownst to them - regarding an event to other users who might be tempted to take the same route.
