Project Description:The objective is to harness emerging information technologies in an innovative use of computational thinking to develop a new type of decentralized transportation system, the transportation market, capable of real-time allocation of resources. The premise is that an intelligent use of traffic information will help users make decisions that will tap into unused vehicle capacity, radically transforming the way people use transportation systems.
Start Date: June 19, 2011
End Date: January 18, 2013
Goals:The objective is to harness emerging information technologies in an innovative use of computational thinking to develop a new type of decentralized transportation system, the transportation market, capable of real-time allocation of resources. The premise is that an intelligent use of traffic information will help users make decisions that will tap into unused vehicle capacity, radically transforming the way people use transportation systems.
