Embracing Artificial Intelligence in Transportation
Increasingly accessible, Artificial Intelligence (AI) is altering the course of transportation’s future. Not exclusive to smart cars and the auto industry, transportation is transformed as cruises, public transport, public parking lots, and more are realizing the benefits of incorporating AI products into various transportation-related products and services. The intrigue of AI becoming a more common element of transportation is best embraced with open arms.
Numerous examples of transportation using AI currently exist, with many more in design and testing. As advances in this technology come to market, the contribution AI makes is undeniable. As expected, futuristic innovation has its challenges, but a collaborative effort by those within the industry works diligently to find solutions.
Cloud-based connectivity at radically increased capacity allows devices to transmit incredible amounts of data and enable AI processing to occur at the device itself.
The forward progress of capabilities enhances the user experience with the most modern technology and communication available. Whether or not you are aware, AI development in smart cars already learns drivers' moods and will adjust climate and music accordingly. Multiple cities are using fully functioning AI buses. These breakthroughs are changing transportation as we know it. As corporations are sensitive to environmental issues, the world is holding them accountable. To effectively work and be accepted in the transportation industry, pollution must be greatly minimized while ensuring sustainable power.
AI Transport Today
Whether or not people know precisely what purpose Artificial Intelligence currently serves in transportation, many are surprised how much is actively and successfully in use.
Driverless Transport - Some of the most innovative and used technology is autonomous vehicles. Currently used for both public and private use, AI's ability in processing and learning only gets better. Whether a self-driving taxi, public bus, truck, or stylish car, "self" driving offers increased passenger safety, a lower number of accidents, and reduced traffic congestion. Financial costs are minimized across the board.
Traffic Management – As location information is collected, AI powered apps analyze local conditions so traveling is smooth and users are better informed. As intelligent cars incorporate this ability, apps will directly compete with the vehicle itself as it learns and makes decisions to streamline travel. Avoiding heavier traffic and accidents due to highly efficient data processing gives AI insights, as it makes predictions for the shortest route, expected patterns and offers incident guidance. Road condition information is also factored into AI’s learning, efficiently managing everything that affects the driving experience. Ultimately, roadways are safer.
Assisting Law Enforcement – Identifying driver behavior associated with texting or driving under the influence is a beneficial resource to help law enforcement. Using AI in this area of transportation removes human resource limitations. Able to alert police and direct them to focus their attention, unsafe drivers are found quickly. Allowing law enforcement more eyes on the road with a voice system that can look up license plate information and provide details within seconds equips our law enforcement to do their job and maximizes efforts.
AutoPilot – Many are unaware that AI in flight is one of the earliest implementations. Outside of takeoff and landing, AI is doing most of the flying on commercial flights. Automated piloting uses AI to process incredible amounts of data and relay that information to flight towers and airports, seamlessly providing current and accurate arrival and departure information.
Transportation of people and goods continues to develop and improve. As with any new concept, challenges are inevitable as the public must embrace new technology to be effective and successful. New AI technology in transportation addresses questions of safety, efficiency, and the big one: reliability.
Safety levels using AI continue to be refined, impressing both users and developers as they discover new opportunities and possibilities. Data reporting continues to yield favorable results in AI safety.
The race is on between data processing capabilities and limited power sources. Once these align, the possibilities will be limitless. Experts are addressing this challenge as they find ways to ensure consistent power throughout use.
Reliability is likely the biggest concern for users of AI transportation. In existing mass public transportation, people often experience unreliability in delays and missed stops. Many opt-out simply due to unpredictability and limited access. Automatic transport using AI is changing the landscape, offering continuity otherwise impossible. If a delay occurs, riders are instantly updated, given status, and eta on the spot. Due to intense data collection and processing, cloud-based AI is offered through reputable and established providers. AI providers will show how automated and intelligent “driving” is as reliable as private transportation. Continual and significant improvements partnered with the widespread acceptance of these concepts encourage businesses to use AI for increased credibility and long-term cost savings.
Oh! The Places AI Will Go
Honestly, it is reasonable to say AI will surpass any expectations currently held on where it would prove helpful within transportation. With continued development in railway and locomotives, goods delivery via trucks, and exponential progress in private and public transit, AI is the future. Olli is already in use, a brilliant public transport that engages in conversation and makes suggestions due to its cognitive ability to answer questions. Cloud-supported processing gives those in transportation an intelligent edge as we experience generational evolution and harnessing sustainable power sources while naturally creating a safer and greener future.
You would likely be surprised how much we have incorporated AI into our daily routine. Most of us aren't even aware of its relevance through our apps, search engines, voice recognition, and social media. AI learns from patterns and preferences and learns what we want to see and is most helpful. It is sophisticated and, well, intelligent. Keep your eyes open to what our future holds in AI, and open your arms wide to embrace the many benefits it offers in transportation and beyond.
