Let me tell you, how AI works in Traffic, first of all, it’s completely based on video inputs extracted from cameras at signals. Recently at Petersburg, tried AI – 10km road- its reduced average of 25 mins time than present traffic signals. Technically If decision taking by AI, its going to organize traffic based on the history of traffic – festivals, events and weekends.
Technically by using AI, we can reduce traffic congestion and jams. Of course, there is a probability of system hacking and failures. Scientists recommend always having a backup system in such occasions.
Most of the people agreed with the present traffic signal are the dump, not smart enough for the growing population. Researchers estimate 21% of emission reductions, to be frank with this technology government can save costs of road widening and additional parking slots.
Catchway preparing research paper on this topic.
