Traffic signals that 'learn' could make for easier commutes | Greenbang

While most people today might be smarter than the average traffic signal, we could — in the future — enjoy easier commutes and better gas mileage with the help of traffic lights using human-like “intelligence.” Using computer games and simulations, researchers at the UK’s University of Southampton have found that people — under the right conditions — can control traffic significantly better than today’s urban traffic-control computers. Following that logic, they’re working on a traffic-light system that could eventually “learn” like humans do and keep improving with continued experience. A test recently broadcast on the BBC’s “One Show” program put presenter Marty Jopson to the test by having him use a laptop to control traffic lights at a technology testing intersection called innovITS Advance . “The demonstration carried out at innovITS Advance indicates that the human b...
