Sometimes, when we think of Artificial Intelligence we tend to imagine robots walking down the street or performing our tasks in the office. But AI is so much more. We may never have wondered, but how does Artificial Intelligence contribute to transport?
AI is responsible for making autonomous vehicles available, for example. This is one of the most innovative points within the world of transport and travel. Best of all, it does not refer only to cars that drive themselves, but to a much safer and optimized vehicle model.
There is no doubt that the evolution of intelligent vehicles is moving forward with leaps and bounds. The the latest innovation is the project developed between Telefónica, SEAT, DGT, Ficosa and Aerum, based on connected cars and the Internet of Things (IoT).
This initiative aims to prevent accidents. It is a technology that provides drivers with a assisted driving increases your safety. They receive, in advance, warnings about obstacles on the road to avoid them.
Another advantage that AI brings to the field of transport is the app creation. These, through the location data of the devices, are able to provide a lot of information to both the user and companies. For example, predict and analyze traffic status, so that drivers can take the road with better conditions.
Beyond cars and land traffic, artificial Intelligence also does its bit in air transport. Although it may sound far away to many, until recently airline tickets were printed on paper. Now, thanks to mobile devices, we can carry them in our wallet.
Airplanes want to stop being responsible for 3% of CO₂ emissions emitted by humans
Therefore, the world of air transport, benefiting from the possibilities of AI, has launched the construction of electric aircraft. Although it is true that this project is still a little resistant, since very large batteries would be needed. In other words: a commercial aircraft has a capacity of 25,000 liters of fuel and for an electric one to work properly, 500 ton batteries are required. And yet the maximum cargo of a commercial aircraft is only 80 tons.
It may seem like something from the future, but artificial Intelligence is already influencing the way we travel. The possibilities are getting better and better.
