IBM experts present results of BR traffic study
BATON ROUGE - A team of IBM experts presented the results of their three week study of traffic in Baton Rouge as part of the corporation's Smarter Cities initiative.
The international group of technology experts spoke to over 80 stakeholders across the city during their stay and emerged with a blueprint for the way forward for Baton Rouge in terms of projects.
Of course, the solutions suggested by the IBM team recommend data-driven solutions to coordinate all decisions about how to deal with gridlock in the metro area over the coming years.
Most important among their recommendations was that focusing on traffic in only the city limits of Baton Rouge is not an effective route to take as the entire region is affected and contributes to the internal problem.
The team even said the city should use social media in combination with data analytics as part of their effort to ease the pain of driving around the Capital City.
The team of experts will present the full results of their traffic study over next two months.
