This supercomputer wants to make sure you never get stuck in traffic again

Researchers from the Argonne National Laboratory (ANL) in the U.S. have tasked their supercomputers to crunch traffic data and predict any upcoming congestion. 

After collating nearly a year’s worth of data from over 11,000 sensors along the California highway system, the researchers worked with mathematicians from ANL to feed the data to the supercomputers.
