Optimising flow within mobility systems with AI: The Turing and Toyota Mobility Foundation collaborate to modernise city planning and traffic management



The Alan Turing Institute and the Toyota Mobility Foundation are collaborating on a project to transform the way cities are planned and managed.



 The objective of this new project, ‘Optimising flow within mobility systems with AI’, part of the Turing’s new AI programme, is to transition complex traffic management from static systems into dynamic, optimized systems that are managed in real-time across many types of mobility.




Potential outcomes include:



    integrating an AI system for traffic lights (signal) control


    building a platform for interactive data manipulation to monitor and predict traffic behaviour, and to test out planning scenarios


    finding mechanisms for fleet operators and cities to work together, for example by sharing data about congestion or pollution hotspots, and rerouting around the problem before it becomes serious

 

 
Alan Wilson, CEO of The Alan Turing Institute and lead researcher:



    Our vision is that city planners and operators should have a system that shows them real-time data feeds, lets them analyse how the city is working, integrates mathematical and computer modelling as well as machine learning models so that they can test out scenarios, and gives them insight into when behaviour patterns are changing.



 Because of data and new technology, transport patterns can now change dramatically in a short time. We hope that this will lead to improvements in health and mobility for city populations as well as safety and efficiency in traffic management






Ryan Klem, Director of Programs for the Toyota Mobility Foundation:

“    While there has been significant focus on AI inside the vehicle, we are excited for the opportunity to work with the Turing to bring data science and AI to a complementing facet of mobility: Infrastructure.



We believe mobility is critical to promoting societal progress and improving lives around the world, and this project represents an important step to improve the social good and help achieve harmony in mobility across all modes for all citizens


 

 

About the Toyota Mobility Foundation



The Toyota Mobility Foundation was established in August 2014 to support the development of a better mobile society. The Foundation aims to support strong mobility systems while eliminating disparities in mobility.



It utilizes Toyota’s expertise in technology, safety, and the environment working in partnership with universities, governments, non-profit organization, research institutions and other organizations to address mobility issues around the world.



 Programs include resolving urban transportation problems, expanding the utilization of personal mobility, and developing solutions for next generation mobility.




About the Alan Turning Institute




The Alan Turing Institute is the UK’s national institute for data science and artificial intelligence.



The Institute is named in honour of Alan Turing, whose pioneering work in theoretical and applied mathematics, engineering and computing is considered to have laid the foundations for modern-day data science and artificial intelligence.



 The Institute’s goals are to undertake world-class research in data science and artificial intelligence, apply its research to real-wo
