Camera-based incident detection has become an established technology to support tunnel operators in keeping their roads safe and in organizing fast response. After the introduction of thermal cameras as a solution for 24/7 automatic incident detection, systems supported by Artificial Intelligence (AI) may well be the next wave. Today, AI is already bringing incident detection to an even higher performance level. sensors and cameras.
Velodyne Lidar today announced the company has acquired Bluecity, a Montreal-based artificial intelligence (AI) software company whose lidar-based solutions solve safety, traffic and infrastructure issues. With the all-stock acquisition Velodyne wants to deliver AI-powered autonomous vision solutions.
A new machine learning algorithm is poised to help urban transportation analysts relieve bottlenecks and chokepoints that routinely snarl city traffic. The tool, called TranSEC, was developed at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory to help urban traffic engineers get access to actionable information about traffic patterns in their cities.
