Tackling traffic congestion and air pollution with artificial intelligence

“Traffic lights controlled by artificial intelligence (AI) could help to ease congestion on Leicester’s roads and improve the city’s air quality. A project, led by De Montfort University Leicester (DMU) with researchers from the University of Leicester, will see if AI and satellite data can help to manage traffic. Researchers will examine information from the city’s Star Trak system – which tracks buses and feeds information on their status to passengers via electronic message boards at bus stops – in order to analyse traffic flow through the city at various times. They will use the data to create computer models which will test how effective artificially intelligent systems are at controlling traffic lights in order to help traffic run more smoothly.
