OnTraJaCS: Ontology Based Traffic Jam Control System
Traffic jams and congestions have bad effects on drivers and the whole community. Most - if not all - route planning systems focus on finding the optimal/fastest route for its users. Users might be advised to pass through a congested road section if it will take less time to traverse than its alternatives. This approach ignores the negative effects of congestion on both of the individual and the whole community. Instead of focusing on giving each user the fastest route to his destination, this papers aims to develop a model that would be optimal to the whole community.
