Driving a radical solution to reduce traffic
Traffic congestion in cities is one of the most difficult problems to solve. It negatively impacts the environment, our health and the economy, as well as our quality of life. One possible solution is the use of vehicles that are automated and connected (CAV). The EU-funded TrafficFluid project proposes a new paradigm: lane-free traffic (to reduce congestion) and the nudge effect (where cars are pushed from a distance, and flow is more effective). The project aims to develop complete novel strategies for vehicle movement as well as urban road infrastructures with micro- and macro-simulation systems. This will spur further research and the development of novel initiatives.
