Vehicle-mounted artificial intelligence helps humans improve the environment and save the planet


Technological advances have made life easier for people over the years, especially on the road, VentureBeat reported. From apps that save driving time to smart streets that track parking spaces, computer programs are helping to simplify transportation like never before. Now, as machine learning technology continues to improve, artificial intelligence (AI) is making travel more convenient.

AI has become a major player in the automotive space. Current and in-development smart features include collision detection, driverless programs, and built-in smart assistants. Automakers are also working to incorporate smart features into their latest models to ensure greater driver comfort and convenience. Beyond that, these AI advancements also have a direct impact on the environment, as they help reduce the number of cars on the road and help passengers get to their destinations more efficiently. Coupled with collision avoidance, fewer accidents mean less traffic jams and fewer ambulances needed.

Fewer cars on the road can help reduce air pollution. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, transportation accounts for more than a quarter of total U.S. greenhouse gas emissions. And by increasing driving efficiency, AI can also help significantly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. In addition, it may also help drive the expansion of ride-sharing models.

Fewer vehicles means faster time for people to reach their destination, which also has a more immediate impact on the environment. Burning less fuel means less fuel is sold, resulting in lower demand for fossil fuels and a more refined process for extracting the oil. If people start using ride-sharing services instead of buying their own cars, it will also eventually lead to a decline in car production, which also helps reduce environmental damage.

While AI is helping revolutionize the automotive industry and changing the way we move, we still need to be vigilant about this technology to ensure it is not misused. The Volkswagen diesel emissions fraud scandal is a game between algorithms and emission standards, and the more complex programming and AI, the more likely it is to be abused.

Although such problems are relatively rare and far from becoming a reality, and as technology advances, the situation will continue to improve. But federal agencies will likely need to evolve to keep up with potential rule breakers. The environmental benefits of AI in transportation now seem to outweigh the risks. The automotive industry is still evolving rapidly to stay ahead of the curve. It might even help save the planet if it sticks to its current direction.
