Every big city suffers horrendous traffic congestion. Government’s solution – build more roads or enlarge existing ones! But what if you completely rethought the problem using biology?
Nature, through evolution always finds the most efficient way to accomplish something. Think of blood cells which travel over 60,000 miles of blood vessels in the human body to deliver nutrients and oxygen to every cell at just the right time.
How could we create that level of efficiency in our transportation system? What would a driverless traffic network look like when everything is automatic and we used three dimensions rather than just a road surface?
