If you live in LA, you know traffic is just a part of life. But does it have to be? For the past three years, teams have flocked to Hack.LA Mobility, LA’s urban transportation hackathon, to see if they can use technology to create a future without traffic jams. At the latest Hack.LA Mobility, Jake Beaudin, an industrial and systems engineering student at USC, and his team won first prize for their app goodmoov. The app, developed within the hackathon’s 24-hour time constraints, offers drivers points for taking alternative, less-congested, routes. The points can then be redeemed with local businesses along the new route.
