AI-powered pollution-reducing traffic lights trialled as part of £30m boost for 5G initiatives

Artificial intelligence (AI)-powered traffic lights will be trialled in Manchester to assess whether they can efficiently reduce pollution and congestion as part of a £30m investment in 5G technology. The project plans to use intelligent sensors to detect speed, path, journey time and queuing data for vehicles, cyclists and pedestrians travelling along the city’s roads. The sensors, running AIRead More
