How To Be A Confident Researcher

2018-04-17T12:10:59+00:00

How IT Can Ease Traffic Congestion

2018-04-17T12:53:07+00:00

How IT Can Ease Traffic Congestion Birmingham University IT researchers have designed a novel system to predict traffic congestion, and the results are impressive, but not surprising. The United Kingdom, much like South Africa, suffers from extreme traffic congestion in inner city areas during rush hours, costing those in transit huge sums of money in both time and fuel. IT researchers at Birmingham University took it upon themselves to collect large volumes of data regarding inner city traffic. The data was collected in a few first-world metropolitan centres such as Boston, Rio de Janeiro, and Porto. How was the data [...]
