Smart Transportation: CarTel

The goal of CarTel (“car telecommunications”) is to investigate how sensor equipped cars and smartphones can be used to capture information about the transportation network and urban environment in general. Example results include an interactive map of the biggest potholes in Cambridge and Boston, collected using car-mounted accelerometers, and traffic aware routing, where real-time traffic delays from cars are used to find the fastest driving routes.Download Publication: "CarTel: A Distributed Mobile Sensor Computing System"
