Taking a lesson from the Agra bus accident, the Uttar Pradesh government has decided to make its buses high-tech. The Uttar Pradesh government has decided to induct government buses equipped with Artificial Intelligence technology into the fleet. The government claims that the use of this new technology will reduce bus accidents.
According to a recent report, the Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation (UPSRTC) is going to install artificial intelligence systems in its fleet of 12,500 government buses. The Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation has also decided to install the system in its buses. The Karnataka government will use Artificial Intelligence technology in 500 buses. On the other hand, the two governments have also started trial runs for these buses, with shocking results.The Artificial Intelligence System will be installed in the front bumper of the buses to avoid possible collisions. The system will also alert drivers before they sleep. Officials of the Uttar Pradesh State Road Transport Corporation say that the pilot project has been going on in six buses of the corporation for the past six months, while there has been no incident with these buses equipped with Artificial Intelligence System.
For your information, Mumbai-based startup company Sixth Sensor Technology has created this system for buses in both states. The company says that sensors have been installed in the front bumper of the buses, which will monitor the range of up to 180 feet and warn the bus driver with a beep as soon as the collision is over. The second sensor is placed near the headlight's handle and will issue a warning as soon as the driver is drowsy. To keep the system active, the driver will have to show his hand near the sensor at regular intervals, which can also be customized. Not doing so will make the sensor feel that the driver is sleeping and will activate and cut off the accelerator. As soon as the driver comes in front of the sensor, the accelerator will start working.
