We’re in the middle of an era of congestion in traffic management, with new technology and new regulations in place to address it.
The new traffic management app that started life in China in 2016 is slowly making its way around the world and has the potential to revolutionise the way people manage traffic, according to traffic management experts.
“We’re seeing a big trend in traffic in the world, from China to India and Europe,” said Rob Dye, founder of traffic management company Traffic Management.
“We’re going to see that continue for a while longer.
I think the world is finally starting to realize the importance of managing the world in the right way.”
Dye said that China’s traffic is now up by more than 300% from a year ago.
“There are more than 200 million cars on the road in China.
It’s a huge market,” Dye told Mashable.
“There are only so many vehicles to go around.”
China has been slowly expanding its infrastructure for the world to take advantage of its vast population, but it hasn’t always been easy.
China has had to scale back its infrastructure and modernise in order to keep up with demand, Dye added.
“It took a few years to build up a robust infrastructure,” he said.
“In the end, the Chinese government didn’t want to invest that much money in it and the infrastructure was so poor.”
Dyes said that while it’s still a long way off the 100% capacity required by the rest of the world for all roads, the current trend is to see traffic management become more important.
“As the world gets more densely populated and urbanised, we are going to be seeing more traffic management,” Dyes told Mashables.
“The technology is improving, but the underlying infrastructure isn’t.”
The future of traffic control app development is still in its infancy.
Dye says traffic management tools will eventually become “the thing to do” in the driverless car era, but he says it will be a while before this happens.
“I think the biggest barrier is not technology, but people.
They’re a lot more cautious,” Dies said.
