real time traffic management system

A system built into the drivers' satnav, which avoids traffic jams and accidents in real time.

It should suggest the best route based on knowlege of the current traffic on several routes.

It might also suggest the best time for a journey (in advance) to avoid busy periods.

Why the contribution is important

Traffic jams and conjestion are one of the biggest problems of our time (for road users).

How do I avoid traffic on a long journey? - travelling at night is probably the best option.

When is the best time, and what is the best route to avoid traffic. I need a system to achieve this.

If enough people had this capability in their car, and had to use it, it would manage problem.

    Hi Giles, thanks very much for your comment.
    I agree that using advances in technology to reroute people in response to real-time traffic information and suggest optimum departure times offers exciting opportunities to reduce journey time and alleviate congestion!
