TechLife Australia - - DISCOVER -

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.
