VicRoads, better known as the Roads Corporation of Victoria, has launched a brand new smart traffic app that is designed to make it easier than ever for drivers and commuters to enjoy the benefits of reduced congestion by making use of plentiful information and data.

The app, developed as part of a collaboration with mobile service company Intelematics, makes use of high-tech signalling technologies to inform drivers about road conditions. However, the most impressive part of this app is the manner in which it integrates adaptive cruise control driving. Specifically, the app helps drivers figure out the speed at which they need to travel if they want to breeze through consecutive green lights. In doing so, the app helps users enjoy a more smooth journey, hopefully helping to reduce rash driving and road rage.
