CarTel Circumvents Gridlock, Avoids Delays
A mobile-sensor network known as CarTel hopes to revolutionize the way traffic is understood, analyzed and (hopefully) avoided. The project is driven (excuse the pun) by CSAIL professors Hari Balakrishnan and Samuel Madden, in collaboration with Jacob Eriksson, Sejoon Lim and professor Daniela Rus. In a further example of cross-cutting and partnership, the initiative is funded by NSF and the T-Party Project (itself a group effort shared by MIT and Quanta Computer).
