AI And Autonomous Vehicles Help With Traffic
We all know about the future of AI, but did you know it will also help with transportation? AI may control traffic flow, which will lessen congestion and accidents. Additionally, autonomous driving and self-driving delivery trucks and buses may replace other forms of public transport and commuter cars. The UK is already tackling this idea with the Future of Mobility fund and three self-driving pilot projects. This includes, “DRIVEN, a trial fleet of fully autonomous vehicles in urban and inter-urban areas that will culminate in autonomous journeys in Oxford and London; RoboPilot, creating autonomous driving for an electric delivery van that could be adapted to buses and larger trucks; and, StreetWise, a demonstration of the technology, safety validation, insurance and service models for autonomous personal mobility to replace the urban commuter car.” Delivery services are also included in this form of transportation, and these projects may see a huge expansion over time. No traffic sounds great, but we’re not convinced about robot cards just yet (National Grid).
