Intelligent transportation would greatly increase security in mobility and reduce traffic congestion, but communications networks need to change to allow for the needed constant connexion, low latency and greater capacity. By launching the Connected Traffic Cloud, Ericsson hopes to inspire the creation of an open ecosystem in which data from connected cars will be shared to ease traffic flow and enhance road safety.         

We all rely on road transport but road vehicles are responsible for 1.24 million deaths every year globally. Then there’s the cost of traffic congestion calculated by adding up wasted fuel, time that could be spent more productively.
