Balakrishnan, Madden use cars as traffic sensors

EECS/CSAIL Professors Hari Balakrishnan and Samuel Madden have been developing a way for cars to be used as ubiquitous, highly reliable mobile sensors. As part of this effort, members of the CarTel team have developed a new algorithm to optimize the dissemination of data through a network of cars with wireless connections. This is already of interest to Ford and Microsoft as these two companies jointly develop future versions of Sync, an in-car communications and entertainment system.
