AR­TI­FI­CIAL IN­TEL­LI­GENCE IM­PROVES HIGH­WAY SAFETY IN LAS VE­GAS

Techlife News - - Summary -

Ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence is help­ing im­prove safety along a stretch of Las Ve­gas’ busiest high­way.

The Ne­vada High­way Pa­trol says a year­long part­ner­ship be­tween area pub­lic safety agen­cies and a startup tech­nol­ogy firm re­sulted in a 17 per­cent re­duc­tion in crashes along a por­tion of north­bound In­ter­state 15 just west of The Las Ve­gas Strip.

The Las Ve­gas Re­view-Jour­nal re­ports Way­care, a provider of ar­ti­fi­cial in­tel­li­gence-based mo­bil­ity prod­ucts and ser­vices for smart cities, helped lead the crash pre­ven­tion pi­lot pro­gram.

They hope to use it in the fu­ture in other parts of the Las Ve­gas Val­ley, in­clud­ing a stretch of U.S. High­way 95 be­tween I-15 and the Rain­bow Boule­vard curve.

The pro­gram uses in-ve­hi­cle in­for­ma­tion, cam­eras, sen­sors and other traf­fic data to de­velop pre­dic­tion mod­els to re­duce con­ges­tion.
