No empty seat – a sustainable AI-based system for transportations in the suburbs
Carpooling (sharing car journeys) allows more persons to travel in a car and prevents the need for others to have to drive to a location alone. It is environmentally friendly and sustainable, resulting in reduced air pollution, carbon emissions and traffic congestion. The French company Karos offers innovative transportation services that combine carpooling and public transportation, but it aims to multiply the benefits of this system. The EU-funded UNITE project will support Karos in developing disruptive technologies deploying artificial intelligence and intermodality and an innovative business model approach to eliminate empty car seats and create sustainable public transportation networks operating at a low cost in low-density areas. In this way, it will revolutionise cities’ transportations, significantly reducing costs and improving network extension and performance.
