Traffic-monitoring tech will make cities smarter and safer.

Traffic-monitoring tech will make cities smarter and safer. Technology has simplified life and daily activities but this can be taken a step further to our roads. Traffic gridlock is common in most developed and developing countries,the difference is management of such gridlock. Data is life,and it is been used to monitor activities on the road to prevent logjams and ensure free flow of data. The data revolution can save a lot of wasted hours in traffic thus creating a peaceful conducive atmosphere for work and business. How to use data to ease traffic : the first step will be to a) identify the zone you are interested in. b) get data of vehicles that ply the route per time .c) mine this data,and create a prototype of traffic during the peak and low periods.d) then fashion out alternate routes,detours,back-roads and link -roads and bridges to prevent gridlocks. This technology can be implemented easily in Nigeria to save the commuters from unnecessary pain, imagine you in traffic for 3-4 hrs just to get to your office #Ajah ,not cool at all. Technology at our disposal, #moving ahead #2018. A company waycare is taking the #bulls by the horns,they are making sure that Speed limits, crashes and bumper-to-bumper traffic may become a thing of the past. Waycare is helping to put the smarts into smart cities by monitoring everything to do with traffic flow – traffic lights, road sensors, security cameras and data sent from connected cars. Waycare consolidates and makes sense of all that data for a city’s traffic management center.
