Tested with human drivers, self-driving car calms traffic | Temple Now

A live experiment recently confirmed for the first time what Temple researchers had predicted based on traffic models and computer simulations: The presence of just a few properly controlled autonomous vehicles can eliminate stop-and-go traffic jams caused by human drivers—along with the accident risks, fuel inefficiencies and increased pollution that such congestion causes.

The finding by a collaborative team of researchers at Temple and three other universities indicates that self-driving cars and related technology may be even closer to revolutionizing traffic control than previously thought.
