Traffic Control of the Future

This simulation shows how it will be possible in the future to dispense with traffic lights entirely. No crashes! The way it works is that each car is required to show down a few seconds as it approaches the intersection. The computer that communicates to each car then ensures a completely smooth flow of traffic without any stopping at all. (To start the simulation, click on the "Simulator" menu at the top left and select "Run".)
