Crowdsourcing, Real-time Data and Connected Cities
We're delighted to have Di-Ann Eisnor with us talking with Mike Butcher, TechCrunch Europe about connected cities, real-time data and how it changes maps and makes them actionable.
Waze is a social mobile application providing free turn-by-turn navigation based on the live conditions of the road.
100% powered by users, the more you drive, the better it gets.She'll emphasize congestion avoidance and crowdsourcing - using some numbers about impact on hours saved and also on emissions saved.
