    Tech companies, UPS team up to examine delivery truck congestion problem - Chicago Tribune

    What’s causing Chicago’s worsening traffic mess?

    Is it Uber and Lyft? The bike lanes? The seemingly endless rounds of street construction?

    One factor cited by traffic experts is the increasing number of deliveries, as people order clothes, furniture and even groceries online.

    To address the issue, the technology firms of City Tech Collaborative, HERE Technologies, Microsoft and Accenture, along with delivery giant UPS, have teamed up on a pilot to study delivery companies’ link to traffic congestion, and find possible solutions.

    Whoopie! Another technology solution to something that every bid driver already knows about.

    They are trying to reinvent the wheel every time they try to skip over rote knowledge developed by their current workforce.
    Deep learning is not going to be as effective as telling a bid driver, an old-time preloader, etc. to write some stuff down on pen and paper and manually codify into a computer system, this is why orion is such a flop compared to plain rdo.
