Conduent Teams to Improve Bus Lane Performance, Traffic Safety

Conduent Transportation and Hayden AI are teaming to deliver technologically advanced solutions that will enhance traffic safety and efficiency for cities and government agencies in the U.S. and abroad. The first available offering from the companies is an automated solution that can improve the effectiveness of traffic lanes dedicated for public transit buses.

The partnership combines Hayden AI’s expertise in computer vision-based, real-time data collection and urban analytics with Conduent’s position as a leading global provider of public transportation and mobility solutions, including traffic enforcement and violations processing. Through technology and innovation, the companies will help agencies to manage traffic congestion and curbside space while lessening environmental impacts. Effective enforcement of bus lanes, for example, can enhance the flow of passenger buses, thereby improving public transportation services and traffic safety while reducing emissions from idling vehicles.

The team’s automated bus lane enforcement solution includes a perception system mounted on the front of a bus that integrates with video analytics review and violation processing technologies, supporting the enforcement of local traffic regulations. The system can improve the speed and efficiency of bus lanes, provide a cost-effective and unbiased enforcement service, and increase utilization of reliable public transportation. The solution, which also provides agencies with data analytics and visualization to monitor effectiveness, also can be applied to additional fleet vehicle services, such as street sweepers and sanitation trucks.
