New plan to reduce traffic jams with smart signal lights and AI
Birmingham: Experts at Easton University have claimed that they have developed a system based on artificial intelligence to control traffic lights, which will make traffic jams a thing of the past.
The first state-of-the-art traffic signal system of its kind uses its powerful cameras to automatically detect what kind of vehicles to stop and how to control the red and green lights.
Although it has been built with the help of many video recordings, the program continues to improve itself and in testing it has been found to be better and more efficient than all the traffic control systems.
Like the densely populated citizens of Pakistan, a large part of the world’s population wastes their precious time in traffic jams and this technology has been developed to solve this big problem. On the other hand, millions of crores of rupees are wasted waiting for the green light.
The software is trained on a real road 3D simulator. It covers different climatic conditions and traffic background. But even after being used in a real environment, it always learns and improves itself.
The software has been told by artificial intelligence that the traffic jam is a loss-making deal and if a rider does not wait and speeds up, it is rewarded. Thus the software tries its best to use the signal in such a way that the cars pass by without any obstruction or collision.
This system, which automatically triggers traffic signals based on artificial intelligence, detects the number of cars currently on the road with sensors and responds to them. That is, he counts the vehicles and makes better decisions while doing his job.
Practical testing of the entire system will begin this year.
