DriveSafe speed-enforcement cameras facilitate safe school zones.
While a school zone should be considered a safe location for children and teens to navigate without much worry, there’s been an alarming 13% increase in fatalities for pedestrians between 12-19 years old in school zones since 2013, according to global non-profit Safe Kids Worldwide.
In an effort to create a safer environment for local communities, Conduent recently became the first transportation company to utilize artificial intelligence in its camera technology through the implementation of the next generation of DriveSafe speed-enforcement cameras in 15 school zone locations across Memphis. The DriveSafe system uses AI to detect and track vehicles through a particular location in order to determine if a violation is going to occur and to issue a response accordingly in conjunction with local law enforcement when a violation does occur.
Here’s how it works: Technology like DriveSafe systems is positioned mid-block in school zones to detect reckless behavior that results in unsafe conditions for pedestrians in these school zones and encourage all drivers to practice safe habits when on the road. The system includes a graphics processing unit and sensors that are precise to +1/-1 MPH, which transmit photographs and video footage to Conduent’s data center for further automated and human review.
