UI for Solar Powered Automated Transit Network (ATN)

Develop a UI/app that will enable users of the revolutionary new form of urban transit, solar-powered automated transit network (ATN), being developed at San Jose State University (see: http://www.engr.sjsu.edu/smssv/) to pay for tickets, track progress of vehicles, integrate with other transit service, etc. Connect with the Spartan Superway team at the Maker Faire Bay Area 2015 (http://makerfaire.com/maker/entry/50148/) ...more »

Make walk/don't walk signals on by default

If these signs are always on, it can help drivers know when a light is about to change. It's already done downtown, but let's do it on other thoroughfares as well. It can also build trust if traffic lights are synchronized. (If you drive the speed limit then you clear every intersection with the same number of seconds remaining, etc.) That will reduce speeding.
