Mathematical equation could reduce traffic jams

9 September 2015

New research led by the University of Bristol has found traffic jams and accidents could be reduced by controlling the reaction times of robotic cars.

City traffic is made up of cars that are similar but not identical.  Computer driven cars are also similar, but they can react faster and through wireless communication observe traffic not just in front of them.
