The Centre for Smart Transportation has been collaborating with the City of Edmonton Office of Traffic Safety to develop the Smart Travel App for drivers. The app provides audio alerts to drivers when they approach high collision areas or school zones and/or when weather or traffic conditions may increase the risk of collisions. Making drivers more aware of potential hazards will help reduce collisions and improve safety. The app is also designed with distracted driving legislation in mind, so that drivers can remain focused on the road at all times.
To find out more about how the app can help drivers, watch the pre-release video:
The Smart Travel App has gone through user testing and is currently being updated based on the feedback. The app will soon be available to the public for free download. Stay tuned for updates!
