Kerala techies find way to help ambulances stuck in traffic
A technology driven system has been built by two entrepreneurs to help ambulances navigate through traffic. The novel solution deals in Intelligent Road Traffic Management System.
The new technology helps dividing the roads into different zones thus letting the system analyze the free roads.
Built by Traffitizer Technologies, the unique system works on artificial intelligence at different levels.
