Road traffic jams continue to be a major problem in most cities around the world and especially in developing regions – resulting in massive delays, increased fuel wastage and monetary losses. Due to the poorly planned road networks, a common outcome in many developing regions is the presence of small critical areas which are common hot-spots for congestion; poor traffic management around these hotspots potentially results in elongated traffic jams. Center for Technology and Economic Development Co- Principal Investigator and NYU Courant Professor Lakshmi Subramanian will deliver a talk regarding this pervasive issue and how he and other CTED researchers are developing methods of analyzing and alleviating traffic congestion in developing cities via CCTV camera feeds.
Join us April 5, 2012 at 6 pm in Sama Tower 1305 for this exciting talk!
