Traffic Control of the Future

Slashdot reports - Traffic Control of the Future:

"... designed an automated system where cars reserve a time to pass through an intersection as they approach it and are then sped up or slowed down to ensure their arrival at exactly the right time. This allows traffic to enter the intersection from all directions simultaneously, eliminating the need for traffic lights and considerably reducing delays caused by stopping traffic. On their website, you can find Java applet simulations to illustrate the system. "

Scary stuff. Who wants to be involved in the "human trials" of this technology?
