Math approaches to traffic

  • All drivers need to be on the same navigation system.Cars can only be efficiently rerouted if instructions come from the same hub. 
  • Many urban roads are too narrow.Traffic-flow models can indicate where parking spots should be turned into lanes.
  • Green lanes incentive. For cities that want to increase electric car use, special lanes should be created for electric cars.
  • Digital twins. Digital modeling can create an entire “twin” of existing roadways to assist transport engineers.
