What is the quickest way home from the office via car? As we all know, this can change based on the day or time of day. Well, there’s an app for that, kind of. The city will be trying out LED signs that are updated remotely with real-time data. The longer-term goal is to make this available online as well.

My plan would be to integrate Google Traffic on a street by street basis and make that available on the LED signs.

The Boston Globe reported “the LED boards will be posted at the exits of high-volume parking garages, providing drivers with real-time driving estimates to help them make more educated decisions — and to help them get the heck out of Dodge as quickly as possible. Three of the signs are set to appear next month.”
