Episode 3: AI to drive mobility change as autonomous train is coming
Amine Arezki, Chief Autonomy Leader at Thales in Germany, where the group’s worldwide competence centre for Main Lines signaling is based, and Walter Kinio, VP, Research and Innovation at Thales in Canada, the company’s global expertise centre for Urban Lines signaling, explain how AI will disrupt mobility and the ground transportation sector.
While artificial intelligence will completely change our daily habits, it is also a booming area in enterprise applications. The ground transportation sector is no exception as AI should be at the heart of the next mobility revolution. Supported by AI, autonomous trains and metros will come faster than people think and they are likely to be on rail even before driverless cars will be on the road. Autonomous trains and metros will improve traffic flow, safety and passenger experience whilst reducing energy consumption and environmental pollution.
