The API uses external databases to factor in seasonality, weather, and events as well.
Newton Technologies – Data-Driven Road Safety Platform
Road safety remains a major public health problem in many countries. Combining traffic and road data with advanced technology helps prevent accidents and reduce injuries. An increase in road safety directly results in an efficient transportation system and also reduces traffic congestion. Startups are making use of artificial intelligence (AI) and deep learning to provide road safety solutions for the mobility industry.
The US-based startup Newton Technologies constructs a platform to improve road safety. With the help of machine learning and deep learning, the startup analyses sensor data, global positioning system (GPS) data, and external data, as well as data on road safety. The virtual driver assistant recommends course corrections and provides real-time updates regarding accidents.
AIDrivers – Autonomous Mobility Solutions
Autonomous vehicles (AV) for logistics and warehousing operations improves worker safety and overall efficiency. AVs enable organizations to control and monitor warehouse productivity by operating day and night and reducing the workload for human workers. Organizations develop autonomous vehicles as mobility solutions to improve the overall bottom line of industrial operations.
British startup AIDrivers offers autonomous vehicles and mobility solutions for industrial operations. The startup enables organizations to optimize operations and transition to automated processes with intelligent job scheduling and live operation visualization. Additionally, the AI-enabled solution, AIFO, uses knowledge-based global path planning to optimize and manage fleets.
SharingOS – Shared Mobility For Last-Mile Connectivity
Rising urban density and transportation congestion issues drive companies to develop innovative shared mobility services. These solutions help lower transportation costs, reduce fuel consumption, and aids in economic development. Shared mobility also results in improved environmental awareness. Startups and emerging companies develop electric vehicles to improve the last-mile shared mobility industry.
British startup SharingOS provides mobility sharing software and hardware systems. The startup has a portfolio of electric vehicles ranging from e-cycles, e-scooters, and e-mopeds. These Internet of Things (IoT)-enabled vehicles are connected through the SharingOS software and serve as on-demand plug-and-play mobility options for users.
Citymagine – Mobility Infrastructure Inspection
Advancements in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication relies on the development of necessary infrastructure to form the base for enabling mobility transformation. Modifications to infrastructure with automated processes also enable a smoother transition for implementing smart city solutions. Various companies are developing automated inspection solutions for mobility infrastructure including camera-mounted traffic lights and smart bus stops.
