Nissan applies artificial intelligence to alleviate traffic congestion

Tokyo: The North American division of Japanese automaker Nissan is testing the feasibility of using artificial intelligence (AI) to reduce highway traffic and fuel consumption.

The five-day test took place on I-24 Motion and was sponsored by the Circle Consortium. It is a segment of US Interstate 24 that is included in the censor. It should be noted that the initial results of the trial were favorable.

Traffic congestion is a pain in the modern world. Not only do they waste time, but they also contribute to pollution.
Nissan has now found a way to deal with traffic jams with the help of Adaptive Cruise Control technology.

Although not as ambitious as self-driving technology, this improved driver-assistance system will undoubtedly help drivers feel more comfortable while driving.

Preliminary data analysis showed that a four-wheeler equipped with such an AI system had a favorable effect on the driving styles of 20 nearby cars. There will also be a deeper scrutiny of the data in the coming months.

For the test, which took place between November 14 and November 18, 100 Nissan Rogues were equipped with the AI-cruise control system.
The researchers verified the ability of the cruise controls on each vehicle to communicate with each other.

It created a network of information about different cars moving at different speeds on the road and the AI ​​algorithm adjusted the speed of the cars accordingly.

To make this project a success, Nissan North America collaborated with the Circles Consortium and the Tennessee Department of Transportation.
The consortium included researchers from UC Berkeley in California, Rutgers University-Camden in New Jersey, Vanderbilt University in Tennessee and Temple University in Pennsylvania.

For testing, a RAV4 and a Cadillac XT5 were provided by Toyota North America and General Motors, respectively.

i-24 Motion is the world's first automotive test facility.
It is 6.4km long and has 300 4K digital sensors, which can store 260 million miles worth of vehicle data annually.
