The technology of artificial intelligence (AI) has revolutionized the transportation sector, bringing many improvements to the way we move from one place to another. AI can continuously monitor weather conditions and other factors with the goal of reducing unplanned downtime. It can also detect hidden patterns in order to provide the air transport industry with information on other possibilities that may cause flight delays and cancellations. Autonomous vehicles, equipped with AI, have the capacity to detect the paths of pedestrians and cyclists, thus greatly increasing transport safety.
Devices can be installed at public transport entrances that issue tickets to passengers as soon as they get into the vehicle. Technology companies, car manufacturers and research groups are researching AI technologies to develop and design automated vehicles for commercial and personal transportation. AI will improve the operations, manufacturing and maintenance of railway operators and infrastructure managers. On-site computing will help discover hidden patterns, which can help the air transport industry gain useful information about other possibilities that may cause flight delays and cancellations.
AI can be used not only to reduce unwanted traffic, but also to improve road safety and reduce waiting times. Based on data collected, AI makes it possible to analyze information and obtain information that facilitates decision-making, helps improve safety, energy efficiency and optimize logistics. Once public policy on AI has fully matured, AI will be adopted in transport, as safety will be guaranteed and trust will be restored. In addition, AI-powered systems show human intelligence and learn over time, indicating that these machines can eventually carry out critical thinking tasks and make decisions on their own.
