Google’s amazing new self-driving cars may be the coming wave of the future, but sadly, they will not eliminate traffic issues. Fortunately, the Waze traffic app (owned by Google) is already on the front lines, fighting traffic one “Wazer” at a time. “Robots will still need to know the best route. We have a nice juicy role,” says Di-Ann Eisnor, vice president of platform and partnerships for Waze.
