Submission + - Bluetooth used to track Traffic Times (

ChanukahZombie writes: The City of Calgary, AB has introduced a new traffic congestion/timing information platform for drivers. "The system collects the publicly available data from Bluetooths to estimate the travel time and congestion between points along those roads and displays the information on overhead message boards to motorists." Currently only available on the Deerfoot Trail (the city's main highway artery) but will be "expanded in the future to include sections of Crowchild Trail and Glenmore Trail in the southwest." As for privacy concerns the city says it cannot connect the MAC address collected to the device owner.
