Google Future Traffic Predictor

Filed under: Google, Technology — Tags: , — coretron @ 8:46 pm

If you take the same freeway enough you begin to learn when its good and when its bad and in which direction. For about a year now I’ve been thinking that someone needs to make a program that predicts future traffic conditions based on previous data. And as usual whenever I have an idea there is a company called Google who makes it for me. After you click on traffic for a map it will pop up a box that says “live traffic” and next to that you can click “change” to choose a day of the week and time of day. Of course it doesn’t account for future accidents but I’m sure Google is working on that. Nevertheless, you will find that most traffic, in Southern California at least, is quite predictable.
