An Artificial Intelligence Emergency Response Layout For Managing Highways

[Full Text]



Emmanouil Papadimitriou, Grigorios Papageorgiou



Artificial intelligence, highway management, emergency response, roadway management



The rapid pace of development in Artificial Intelligence (AI) provides unprecedented opportunities to enhance the performance of many infrastructure projects, including those in the field of transport infrastructure management. The innovations introduced by Artificial Intelligence include highly advanced computational methods that mimic the way the human brain works. As the road infrastructure of modern highways often stands for a scene of emergency facts, a crucial aspect for adequate operation is the management of these incidents rapidly and effectively. The exploitation of AI potentials with the development of an AI emergency response layout is the main objective of this paper. Road operators and users benefit from on-time information and relative suggested actions, derived from the proposed AI layout. Improved management of road operation and minimized incidents’ costs are the main goals of such implementations. Furthermore, an increase of safety and comfort levels for road users are the crucial aspects an AI layout shall aim at. The proposed AI application collects important information from the road area and either decides or suggests proper, in each case, actions.
