Mobile While Mobile

8 02 2010

New apps keep on rolling in but one caught my eye recently in the Financial Times. The UK Government is considered a plan to monitor traffic on the country’s freeways via drivers’ mobile phones. Turning on this app presents some obvious challenges.

They’ll need to put detectors into the road that’ll track the movements and speeds of automobiles and use this data to forecast congestion more accurately and quickly. Big problem that I can see is personal privacy and why aren’t they looking at GPS especially as this becomes practically a given in many handsets?
