Hanover (dpa / lni) - Digital traffic management should mean that drivers in Lower Saxony are less likely to be stuck in traffic jams in the future.

For this purpose, the state relies on the NUNAV navigation technology, which networks and evaluates countless data from the streets in real time.

Every driver receives an individual route proposal in order to prevent subsequent traffic jams on alternative routes, said Minister of Transport Bernd Althusmann on Thursday in Hanover.

"We cannot prevent every traffic jam, but we can make traffic much more efficient," said the CDU politician when presenting the system.

All that is required to use NUNAV is a device with internet access.

The system is available free of charge as a navigation app for Android and iOS devices.

But the regional traffic authority also uses the system to identify areas of accident more quickly than before.

NUNAV was developed by Graphmasters from Hanover.

The country paid 180,000 euros for this.
