FOUNDING STORY: We want to hear about your “Aha!” moment. Share the story of where and when the founder(s) saw this solution’s potential to change the world.
Our group has been looking for a comprehensive source of traffic situation updates in Metro Manila for a long time. Having found none, we decided to develop this intuitive traffic update system that will benefit 14 million people in Metro Manila.
Specify both the depth and scale of your solution’s social impact to date
Today, we can plan our trips better by avoiding gridlocks and by using other routes. We hope more people will also enjoy the benefits of our traffic update system.
What is your projected impact within the next 1-5 years? Is your idea replicable? If so, how?
We are optimistic that the country's economy stands to benefit from this project, which will help reduce the estimated economic losses of 100 billion pesos ($2.3 billion) a year due to traffic. With this project, motorists and commuters are accurately informed of the prevailing traffic situation in specific roads, thus they know which roads to avoid in case of heavy traffic.
This project can be replicated anywhere in the world because we used open systems in developing the project. Our group is just an email away from interested parties who want to adopt this traffic update system.
