Cell Phone Data Helps Map Traffic Jams

Don't be alarmed, the government isn't watching your every move via tracking your mobile phone... just UC-Berkeley and MIT. The institutions published a joint study where they collected the anonymous phone records of over 680,000 Boston-area commuters through call logs spanning traditional commute hours. The data paint a vivid and nearly-beautiful picture of how traffic flows during peak hours around the city of Boston. 


This article form Ars Technica gives some background information on the study and serves to spotlight some of its surprising findings.

Don't forget here at the Cell Phone Doctor we repair phonesbuy used phones and even sell used phones at bargain prices.
