India born Engineer architects world’s first autonomous traffic management platform

India born Engineer 36-year-old Vaibhav Ghadiok has architected the first autonomous traffic management platform in the world. Vaibhav is a pioneer in the field of robotics with multiple inventions and patents to his name. He is the Executive VP of Engineering at Hayden AI (Silicon Valley, USA), where he is using his expertise in AI and robotics to enhance transit systems across the world.

Vaibhav’s latest work has applications in building smarter cities and modernizing and optimizing traffic management that will have an impact on millions of people. He is currently working with major US state governments to implement this technology with plans to expand globally.

Vaibhav leads a team of 30 talented scientists and engineers that has architected a camera-based perception platform that can be deployed in city fleets such as transit buses and garbage trucks for automated traffic and parking management. The perception system builds a rich 3D semantic map of its environment identifying objects such as lane lines, parking meters, traffic signs, fire hydrants, sidewalks, and crosswalks.

With each successive pass it refines this map and updates it. Armed with this map and running deep-learning-based computer vision algorithms, the system automatically detects and identifies violations such as illegally parked vehicles in bus lanes. Reducing such violations allows buses to move faster.

This technology enables effective enforcement addressing one of the major criticisms of past bus lane programs. Improved bus speed leads to faster commute times and increased ridership.

As cities such as Delhi, Bengaluru, and Mumbai reconsider adopting dedicated bus lanes, technology developed by Ghadiok will play a key role in their successful implementation.
