Project - Future of Public transportation

Project Info

Project Description


The project aims to improve the entire transportation system by using the Internet of things, face recognition and artificial intelligence. The first part focuses on using such technology to communicate between traffic lights and buses in such a way that they only encounter green lights. The system further can be integrated with cars to reduce traffic congestion and eventually get rid of traffic lights.


Data Story


We studied the data and found that the speed of public transport has been decreasing over the years, the waiting time between two buses is also extremely long. We also found that people do not want to go through the hassle of recharging or having to use MetroCards. We focused on all these problems and tried to come up with a project that would tackle these problems.
