Apart from the environmental threats, being stuck in traffic where multiple red lights appear constantly can be highly stressful. However, using the company’s vast maps database and AI, Google aims to optimise traffic lights around the globe with its new Project Green Light system. The first city to ever try this new system was Seattle, even though Google started to test the project in 13 other cities, impacting over 30 million car trips a month, hoping to reduce stop-and-go traffic significantly - almost up to 30%.
An engineer at Seattle’s Department of Transportation, Laura Wojcicki, highlights the domino effect of this initiation: smoother traffic benefits drivers on the road and delivers a 10% reduction in emissions, which directly contributes to fighting against the country’s biggest source of pollution for the sake of more sustainable and clean planet.
As AI systems grow bigger every day, it has become a common practice to witness their implementation for the greater good of society in various forms. At TechnoLynx, we are ready to work on the following groundbreaking projects where AI can boost functionality and spread multiple benefits in crucial areas of life, such as smart cities, healthcare, manufacturing, and so forth!
