Application advantages of artificial intelligence in the field of transportation


With the development of science and technology, artificial intelligence technology is developing rapidly in the world, and more and more fields have begun to use artificial intelligence. People's transportation and travel, such as rail transit and driverless, are also gradually matched and integrated with artificial intelligence. Through cloud computing, big data, in-depth learning, people counting, ADAS, CCTV, natural language, biological reading and other artificial intelligence technologies, more and more will be used in rail transit in the future.


1. More intelligent and convenient way to enter

The application of artificial intelligence can realize the prediction of the flow in the station, and can change the opening mode of the gate according to the peak hours, so as to achieve the efficient passenger control mode. In terms of the selection of inbound mode, it can also carry out diversified outbound processing, and customers can pay in the way of QR code, app, face recognition, voice, etc. at the entrance.


Whether it is the subway payment and charging system or the data statistics of the whole gate and the subway station, it can realize the prediction of the station flow, and also can change the gate opening mode according to the peak hours, so as to achieve the high-efficiency passenger control mode. At the same time, in terms of the selection of inbound modes, diversified modes of selection are becoming more and more common. Whether traditional cash payment, or payment by QR code, Internet, points, e-ticket or by face, voice, biometric and other means, the lower cost, more convenient and efficient payment mode or * finally stands out, but diversified payment mode has gradually entered our life.


2. More diversified subway station services

As the center of passenger traffic, the importance of subway station is self-evident. Metro station is divided into transfer station and general station. As the passenger counting distribution center of rail transit industry, the importance of metro station is self-evident. At present, the added value of most of China's subway stations is still relatively small. Through AI enabled subway stations, not only the shops and services that are suitable for each subway station can be calculated, but also the congestion degree and other relevant data of each subway station in the corresponding time period can be calculated according to the historical passenger flow, making the passenger travel more convenient.


3. More efficient and comfortable ride experience

In the present stage of China's subway cars, there are many advertisements in the cars, almost the same handle, seats and related advertising boards. In the near future, big data and corresponding deep learning technology of artificial intelligence will be used to forecast and query the passenger flow and recent situation of each line. In the future, big data of artificial intelligence will bring travel reference and media to customers Information, train time information, etc., or it will bring more sharing economy in subway cars, so that the journey is no longer boring.


4. More refined and reliable scheduling

In the future, the artificial intelligence train control system, intelligent centralized coordination and unified management line network. At the same time, it can further improve the automation of urban management. It can access on-demand services through the open data platform, and connect with the sharing car, bicycle, taxi, public transport and other transport terminals. It can query implementation information and major events.


The traditional control and management of the train is transforming to intelligence. The background can simulate human behavior to implement the management of the train and train group. The former is the intelligent train, which controls the auxiliary and automatic driving of the train through the on-board computer, while the latter controls the train through the intelligent workstation of the dispatching center to complete the train operation plan, operation management, information service and other functions.


In the future, with the continuous progress and improvement of artificial intelligence, the combination of rail transit and various emerging technologies will bring people more convenience than these. A large number of rail transit data can bring great effect to the development of the city, such as school planning, business district layout, residential area location, and put forward more valuable suggestions.
