The paper, co-authored by Mohamed Alrefaie, Luigi Telesca and Davide Tosi, will illustrate a new traffic model called Speed Profile whose aim is to build an average speed of traffic history for each road link in the city, based on real-time data collected. With this road profile, one can easily get real-time data, historical data and forecast future speed based on time, weather and several other factors. This information can be used to calculate the best route to avoid long traffic queues and to reach destinations as quickly as possible.
