Optimizing traffic signals to reduce wait times at intersections

Traffic lights at intersections are managed by simple computers that assign the right of way to the nonconflicting direction. However, studies looking at travel times in urban areas have shown that delays caused by intersections ...

Public transport: AI assesses resilience of timetables

A brief traffic jam, a stuck door, or many passengers getting on and off at a stop—even small delays in the timetables of trains and busses can lead to major problems. A new artificial intelligence (AI) could help designing ...
