Alexandre Bayen works on smarter apps for traffic flow [video]

Featured Faculty: Alexandre M. Bayen

Professor Alexandre Bayen is working on smarter apps that will actually talk to one another to prevent clogged freeways and city streets.

Since “we can’t build our way out of congestion,” Bayen says, the only way this will work is if the apps collaborate and steer different people along different routes to prevent congestion.

Bayen discussed current problems caused by traffic apps, and how UC Berkeley researchers hopes to solve the problem to help commuters and cities alike at his May 2017 Cal Future Forum.
