Google Maps "live" traffic

GPS Business News - March 21, 2013

A researcher at the Ham­burg Uni­ver­si­ty of Tech­nol­o­gy has pub­lished a sci­en­tif­ic paper show­ing that Google’s real-time traf­fic ser­vice can be hacked using false float­ing car data. Google and com­mu­ni­ty traf­fic app Wave seem to be more at risk than tra­di­tion­al com­mer­cial real-time traf­fic providers such as Inrix, Navteq, and Medi­amo­bile. Their diver­si­fied devices and part­ners make such hacks more dif­fi­cult to imple­ment.
