Let’s start this story with two crucial letter pairings:



First, AI – specifically, Hayden AI, a company focused on revolutionizing problem-solving with artificial intelligence. Even more specifically, AI-powered geospatial analytics through a mobile perception platform that goes beyond automated traffic enforcement. Through its deep learning, problem-solving perception platform backed by powerful AI, Hayden AI explores the many ways intelligent perception technologies can resolve real-life challenges through the implementation of the-future-is-now type of real-world applications.

For Hayden AI, application examples already include capturing stop arm violations automatically for improved safety and enforcement efficiency when it comes to school buses and the traffic around them. They also include enforcing transit bus lanes and bus stops automatically, keeping streetcars safer for riders, additional ways to automate violation detection to enhance the capabilities of roadway safety workers (i.e. beyond, say, traditional red light cameras), and even improving adherence to street sweeping laws, which affects roadway cleanliness, how pollutants and removed, how valuable street infrastructure is overseen, and how overall environmental sustainability is acted upon.

In recent Hayden AI-centric news, the company announced that it has signed a new contract with Los Angeles Metro for the deployment of bus lane and bus stop enforcement camera systems operating within LA.

There’s this story’s AI and LA, as promised.

Under the new agreement, 100 systems are being installed this winter. They are expected to be fully operational for the city by spring of next year.

And, although this will be new for LA, the Los Angeles Metro adopting this actually marks the fourth instance that a U.S. transit agency has selected Hayden AI’s geospatial mapping technology.

A great future-forward initiative, it would seem.

Chris Carson, founder and CEO of Hayden AI, agrees:

“The mission of Hayden AI is to use computer vision and geospatial technologies to make cities safer, more sustainable, and smarter. Partnering with LA Metro to keep bus lanes and bus stops clear helps advance that mission. There’s a reason why transit agencies from across the country are partnering with us – our technology makes public transit faster, more reliable, safer and efficient. We’re excited to help deliver high-quality transit service for Angelenos.”
