The Future Is Not Yet Arrived

Traffic Data at your Mobile Phone or in Website. Smart phone based traffic data pooling software has been available in the US for about more than a year or so. But in India we are still in a development stage. One reason could be the lack of sophisticated smart phones to participate in the program and the absence of volunteers for community benefit program.

Nericell is a project undertaken by the Microsoft India Research Bangalore and it uses smart phones to pool and share traffic data from a particular area. I would say too little too late for the public of India. The same could have been achieved by using planted devices in the area, which has been undertaken at few locations in Mumbai.
