Tablets are mounted in the bus so drivers can easily keep track of when they’re running ahead or behind schedule by glancing at the colored bars, each representing a minute, instead of conversing with dispatchers. Red bars tell drivers to slow down, green bars to proceed normally. The blue bars indicate the driver is on schedule.
Reminiscent of our backwards propagating traffic wave demo at Transportation@MIT hackathon. Suggests the idea of a game, which could very well provide the motivation to smooth out highway traffic.
