Drivers are already advised of the best routes – in static or predicted conditions – between locations, using algorithms and existing GPS services. Community-based information sharing, such as via Waze, alerts other drivers about real-time traffic and road conditions, allowing drivers to change their routing as necessary if possible.
Goals and Objectives
With real-time information on road and traffic conditions, drivers can route themselves around problem areas, resulting in time and fuel savings for themselves, and from a city perspective, will help alleviate traffic congestion and in turn reduce avoidable environmental pollutants.

Use Case Summary
This technology is continuing to improve using smart technology such as connected cars, intersections, mobile apps, and real-time digital signage. Journey planning helps drivers avoid congestion, resulting in faster, easier trips and less car emissions.
