Presentation

Trusted and exPlainable Artificial Intelligence for Saving Lives (TruePAL)

It has been estimated that emergency vehicle accidents in the United States cost $35bn annually. Fatalities caused by emergency vehicle collisions are 4.8 times higher for emergency responders than the national average. The TruePAL project is funded by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to demonstrate how AI technologies can be used to reduce emergency vehicle accidents and improve roadside worker safety. TruePAL is an AI assistant that provides real-time warning to first responders based on predicted potential collision conditions. The presentation will show CARLA simulation results of intersection, roadside and first aid safety scenarios.
