iHotSpot is a prototype-stage AI-enabled system created by SpaceTimeAI that can improve road safety and reduce traffic congestion. The solution has already been tested in the UK, China and the US, leading to a 30-40% improvement in the predictive accuracy of traffic incidents, while using much less training data and shorter computing time.
UK firm SpaceTimeAI tackling traffic congestion in Brazil
This has exacerbated congestion and pollution and every year the country registers over 45,000 road accident fatalities.
This can enable better planning and decision making for city planners which can lead to a substantial decrease in traffic incidents. With highly flexible and visualised interfaces, it can be seamlessly fit into a wide range of in-house decision support systems through a flexible application programming interface.
The project, which competed with 300 submissions became one of 30 projects awarded grant funding to carry out a discovery phase to investigate the feasibility and demand for the iHotSpot solution in Brazil.
Connected Places Catapult brought human-centric design and impact assessment expertise to help gather insights from potential end-users/customers to validate the demand of iHotspot along with commercial networking opportunities aimed at preparing for future opportunities.
Benefits & Results
- Establishing and building strong relationships with industry organisations in Brazil
- Opportunity to uncover the challenges, needs and demands from potential end users to validate assumptions and tailor the solution for the end customer.
- Securing a new project with local stakeholders to carry out a demonstration phase of the iHotSpot solution in Brazil.
