Technology and Traffic?
Seoul has 25 million people in the city whichis halfof South Korea’s population. The United Nations predict more than 6 billion people will be in the world’s cities which is crazy to think. Seoul uses real time data to predict and control traffic. They gather information on buses, gps in taxis, and smart tickets in the subways to maximize efficiency.
When reading his article of how Seoul can use technology to control traffic it made me thinks of the future of autonomous cars. I can see traffic being controlled by the communication of autonomous cars. This may be far fetched but I can see cars communicating with each other so the traffic flow is smooth and efficient. This can also decrease or completely eliminate accidents. When a new car turns on and enters the road the traffic pattern will adjust by communicating with the new car.
With this I raise the question of, what do you see as the future of autonomous cars and/or traffic? Also, what are your reactions to my theory of autonomous cars communicating with each other to control traffic?
