The researchers believe that two components are required to balance the traffic.
The St. Petersburg mathematicians Alexander Krylatov and Viktor Zakharov have suggested using mathematic algorithms to fight traffic jams in megalopolises, Rossiyskaya Gazeta reports quoting their study published by Springer.
The main idea is that to improve transport situation a single common navigation system and harmonized infrastructure development are necessary.
The researchers note that most drivers use navigators, consequently, the navigator can be used as an efficient means of regulating traffic to avoid imbalance.
To make it possible, it is essential that all drivers should use the same navigation system and receive information on optimal routes from the single center.
A physical way to improve the situation is also available. City roads should be made broader along the entire route, not just one or two streets that make part of it.
Mathematic models based on digital twins of transport systems will demonstrate how changes into transport infrastructure will affect the traffic.
The authors believe their ideas will help manage the budget allocated for transport infrastructure improvement more efficiently.
