Using AI to fight climate change

With the steady advent evolution of technology, environmentalists have taken to adopting smart technologies to curb climate change.

Isarsoft Perception uses security cameras for data collection in order to gather insights about carbon emissions.

The cutting of carbon emissions is instrumental in the fight to limit climate change. The same doctrine is applicable for all sectors of transport, city and traffic planning, and for the aviation industry. While more and more governmental bodies adopt smart technologies to fulfil the need for a sustainable ecosystem, let us look into how and why video analytics make all the difference.

Let us, for example, look into vehicular pollution. A typical passenger vehicle emits around 4.6 metric tonnes of carbon dioxide per year. A major part of this number is attributable to congestion, poorly constructed roads and parking lots and idle time. Are you wondering how AI would help? Here’s how.

The use of AI in edge-based devices is a step up from ordinary surveillance, as the data is processed at the site of collection. The data, therefore, also reaches planners faster than it usually would, resulting in a quicker response time. Video analytics help planners differentiate between types of vehicles and create different lanes for different types. This limits congestion by keeping traffic from bottleneck-ing at a particular location. By implementing specific lanes, operators can also guarantee a better success rate for accident prevention.

Parking poses similar problems for climate neutrality. German drivers spend 41 hours per year looking for a parking spot. Video analytics can help resolve this problem to a great degree by using data-driven planning to ensure optimization and create neatly demarcated areas based on availability. The end result? Lower emissions. 

The use of urban technology promises great results for the long term, too. Data, collected over the period of many months, can act as the foundational base for better roads, sustainable infrastructure and easy parking processes. It is not an exaggeration to ascertain that the power of AI can be harnessed to implement not just an efficient, climate-neutral transport system but also to improve the standard of living for citizens. 

Isarsoft Perception is a software solution that enables clients to use security cameras to their full potential. It offers a wide range of deployment - on-premise, in-edge and cloud servers. The software, once installed, collects data 24*7 and processes it to generate intuitive analytics for mobility, optimization and security purposes.

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
