Traffic is the only aspect of modern life that makes us regularly question the benefits of civilisation. While there are bound to be traffic Houdinis that are adept at wriggling out of a car-flooded commute, a GPS system that accurately avoids traffic would be a giant leap for mankind. Setting their minds to solving this first-world problem, computer scientists from Nanyang Technological University in Singapore have honed a traffic routing algorithm that minimises the occurrence of traffic jams.
