Will telematics eliminate traffic jams?

Certainly not tomorrow morning. But it can already contribute to reducing them.


But how? 


For example, data on the global density of MAC addresses of mobile handheld devices could serve as a proxy for pedestrian density and signal the need to prime vehicle-based systems for safer operation (lower speed, preparation before braking, etc.). 

In-depth analysis and fine-tuned understanding of travel, whether pedestrian, two-wheeled, or new modes of travel such as eclectic scooters, will soon make it possible to regulate the frequency of public transport. These systems are already in full-scale experimentation to study and rationalize mobility in rural areas. Everything indicates that in the coming months, experiments will also be launched in cities to regulate bus frequencies by taking into account numerous sources of data, including meteorological elements or the occurrence of exceptional events.  


It will also be possible to vary the duration of traffic lights in order to smooth traffic flow in dense areas. The holding of the Olympic Games in Paris in 2024 will be an opportunity to measure the effectiveness of these systems, which will be widely deployed by then.
