Google acquires company Urban Engines is analysing urban transport arteries
Google announced the acquisition of Urban Engines. Urban Engines using big data and spatial Analytics, analyzes the transport system of a city, providing data to private companies or public institutions, which can then use them for their own purposes.
If we idealize the question, such studies are able to optimize the transportation system of any city, but some of the data here, of course, is not enough.
Such information, moreover, can be used in the framework of the project on creation of unmanned vehicles. Although Google, given its capabilities and market reach, it is able to do the direct work with local authorities to improve the situation on the roads.
