UCI School of Medicine: “New Study Shows Crowdsourced Traffic Data Could Save Lives”

May 22, 2019

A new University of California, Irvine-led pilot study finds, on average, Waze “crash alerts” occur two minutes and 41 seconds prior to their corresponding California Highway Patrol (CHP)-reported crash.  These minutes could mean the difference between life and death. The paper titled, “Crowdsourced Traffic Data as an Emerging Tool to Monitor Car Crashes,” was published today in JAMA Surgery.

Informatics Professor Sean Young is the study’s lead author. Read the full story on the UCI School of Medicine website.
