Gridlock-Busting Management Systems Are Gaining Speed
With more than 1.3 billion cars in the world, urban gridlock is a near-universal grind. To address it, urban planners are looking to update one of the most basic and prevalent technologies: the traffic light. Affordable sensors, artificial intelligence and real-time technology are helping clear choked roads and expediting the movement of people through busy corridors. Advanced traffic management systems could cut commute times by an average of 15 percent to 20 percent by 2025, according to McKinsey.
