Sydney is an amazing city, extremely diverse, business focused and driven. But as with most big cities, congestion of traffic (public and drivers) is a large problem and often a complaint of many locals. Enter Redirect.
Redirect aims to be a platform to model, simulate and plan better cities by modelling road traffic.
While we are not road modelling experts, we enable the people with the right domain knowledge on our platform to model the effects of adding / removing features within a city’s transport network such as reducing the amount of traffic through bottleneck roads and diverting it elsewhere, adding parking spaces that are cheaper near less congested roads as an incentive.
In the future we can incorporate other features such as road speed limits and tolls with the ability to accept a "citizen" AI model as a parameter for analyzing traffic diversion behaviour. We can also leverage public transport APIs to estimate the impact of a new transit station / more vehicles in a particular area.
We do this by querying many APIS. We elaborate on this more in the data story section.
