Two ago, Google paid an $1 billion for a company it said revolutionize the way people get around. The Google bought doesn’t electric cars. It doesn’t solar-powered airplanes.

It doesn’t any vehicle at all.

Waze, the startup for which Google an Instagram-size bounty, is an app that to help drivers avoid jams. Drivers use the software to road congestion to one anotherand they hope, reduce commute times, fuel and greenhouse-gas emissions, all without changing the vehicles they That Google paid an 10 figures for Waze is the latest of a subtle but potentially significant in the future of transportation: a change not in cars have under the but in how they behave on the road.

Amid all the turbocharged talk of Leafs, and Teslascars that fuel consumption by replacing grandfather’s internal-combustion engine a hybrid or fully electric bevy of technologies aim to reduce environmental impact by choreographing when, and where they around. Less sexy a new engine but often as technologically the alternatives range from programs to smart-traffic-light networks to systems that reward for commuting before or after the of rush hour. Many of ideas are attracting real and their environmental benefit be large.

In Toronto, a university team has out a software system that traffic lights to learn how and trucks flow under then adjust their of reds and greens to move traffic more smoothly. The which uses artificial techniques, is installed at 59 intersections in Toronto. The team’s computer says this system of self-learning traffic lights” travel times by 25 percent and carbon-dioxide emissions by 30 percent, to a report issued this by the University of Toronto’s Baher who is one of the system’s designers.

A slick piece of traffic-light doesn’t get the juices flowing as as, say, a battery-powered car that can from zero to 60 in fewer four seconds and never to fill up at a gas station. (That car be the Tesla Roadster .) But such advances may matter more. The States has approximately 100,000 electric vehicles on the road. to Plug In America, an electric-vehicle group. Though that’s a big from a few years ago, it constitutes just 0.04 of the roughly 250 million cars of all on American roads. And given not quite 16 million new cars are in the United States annually, over today’s auto will take many

That means techniques make the existing mass of move around more could have a much near-term effect than environmentally friendlier ways to a car’s wheels.
