Sacramento tests AI-powered cameras for school buses

  • 1 mth ago

To prevent motorists from illegally passing school buses while they pick up and drop off students, Sacramento is testing artificial intelligence-powered stop-arm cameras on five of its buses. It plans to use data from the cameras and on-board sensors to learn where and when violations occur so it can improve enforcement at violation hotspots.

The city is partnering with BusPatrol, a bus safety technology company, to equip the buses with AI-enabled cameras and internet-of-things sensors. When a bus is stopped, cameras are activated, and the Automated Violation Analysis system sends video, GPS and telemetry information via an encrypted LTE network to the cloud. filters the footage before trained staff remotely scan the footage for evidence packages for police, who can then review these to decide whether a violation has been committed. The information can also be shared with other local agencies to reduce the number of incidents at stopped school buses.
