At OSPE’s 2022 Engineering Conference, Emanuel Corthay (P.Eng.) will share his experience using AI (artificial intelligence) and computer vision to design greener, safer roads. In recent years, High Occupancy Vehicle (HOV) lanes have been introduced across Canada to reduce emissions and congestion. However, it is estimated that much of the traffic in these lanes comes from single-occupancy vehicles. To address this problem, accurate data is needed on the use (and abuse) of HOV lanes.
Corthay’s presentation (Using Artificial Intelligence [AI] to Promote Greener Smart Mobility and Improve Road Safety) will share performance results from Invision AI’s roadside unit, which uses AI and computer vision to record occupancy and traffic data in HOV lanes. Corthay will also share how this technology can detect hazards in various environments and provide safety data for urban planners. His presentation offers an engaging case study of how computer vision and AI can be used to build a smarter, greener, and safer future.
