How AI can reduce traffic congestion and fuel consumption

Researchers at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) used artificial intelligence and machine learning to design a computer vision system that helps keep traffic moving efficiently through intersections and has the added benefit of minimizing fuel consumption.

“Journey of a lifetime.”: Matt Cole

Before news broke that Matt Cole, president of Cubic Transportation Systems, was leaving, we caught up with him to discuss how the company is transforming the way we travel, and his many achievements there.

ORNL researchers use stop-light cameras to reduce fuel consumption of less-efficient vehicles via traffic management

The team’s first step in February 2018 was to use GRIDSMART cameras to create an image dataset of vehicle classes. With GRIDSMART cameras conveniently installed on the ORNL campus, the team also employed a ground-based roadside sensor system being developed at ORNL, allowing them to combine the overhead images with high-resolution ground-level views.

Simulations, AI enable GRIDSMART cameras to time traffic lights to MPG estimates

A first-year seed project funded by HPC4Mobility, the DOE Vehicle Technologies Office’s program for exploring energy efficiency increases in mobility systems, demonstrates how such a goal could be accomplished. Using the preexisting stop-light cameras of GRIDSMART, a Tennessee-based company that specializes in traffic-management services, researchers at DOE’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory have designed a computer […]

ORNL Project Demonstrates Viability of ‘Smart’ Traffice Cameras to Save Fuel

To make such a camera-based control system work in the first place requires smart cameras placed at high-traffic intersections, able to capture images of vehicles and equipped to transmit the data. Fortunately, such camera systems do exist—including one produced by GRIDSMART, a company located just a few miles from the ORNL campus in East Tennessee.
