AI Unicorn SenseTime to Improve Shuttle Buses in Shanghai Auto Industry Zone

(Yicai  Global) March 13 -- Chinese artificial intelligence unicorn SenseTime  will work with Shanghai International Automobile City, an industrial  zone in the eastern Chinese city, to boost the operational capacity of  commercial shuttle buses, optimize passengers' ride experience and build  a traffic data platform for intelligent connected vehicles.

The  Beijing-based firm will roll out the intelligent transformation of all  of SIAC's shuttle buses, which will bring in real-time driver  monitoring, fatigue warnings and facial-recognition technology,  state-backed news outlet China National Radio reported. SenseTime has  already equipped the system on 38 electric bus routes as a trial. 

This  is the first time that SenseTime's smart cabin will be used in public  transportation. The National Intelligent Connected Vehicle Pilot Zone,  set up by SIAC, will also work with SenseTime to collect and analyze big  data related to traffic scenes, to create an AI-powered basic data  platform.

The equipment to be installed can collect 200 hours of traffic data each day or 10 gigabytes in total.

SIAC  is an auto industry integration zone located in the west of Shanghai.  It gained government approval to build China's first ICV test base in  2015, and is also home to the Shanghai International Circuit used in  Formula One racing.
