On-Line Network-Enabled Intelligent Transportation Systems provide powerful new tools to reduce traffic congestion and improve transportation

One of the world’s most advanced networking facilities for solving traffic congestion and urban transportation issues was officially launched today, giving researchers and planners tremendous new capacity to tackle traffic congestion and complex traffic management tasks. Core funding of C$700,000 was provided by CANARIE – Canada’s Advanced Research and Innovation Network (www.canarie.ca), and the system relies on CANARIE’s ultra high-speed, high-bandwidth capabilities to enable real-time solutions to multifaceted transportation problems.
