'Smart Transportation System'
« on: November 03, 2011, 02:00:04 PM »
Dashboard-mounted GPS units are almost as common as iPods, and now this network of location sensors is crowd-sourcing its resources by feeding into smart transportation systems that improve traffic management and planning
This technology amalgamates real-time traffic information from many sources--including dashboard-mounted GPS receivers, iPhone app users and fleet management service users--and then gives time-saving rerouting suggestions to travelers with specific times-to-destination instead of miles or kilometers.
At the ITS World Congress (held last week in Orlando, Fla.), TomTom described its vision of the future where crowd-sourced information flowing through its servers helps governments around the globe to manage traffic and simplify urban planning as well as help industry fleets and individual drivers find their way about, not by the shortest route in miles, but by the quickest time on the clock
