As part of the SmartEdge project, we are developing swarms of autonomous mobile robots and smart edge devices that can adapt themselves to dynamically changing environments while collaborating with each other to achieve common goals.
Rear-end collisions are a major road safety problem, particularly at intersections with traffic lights. Using swarm intelligence, Aalto University and Conveqs Oy are introducing a new approach to tackle the problem through connected and cooperative traffic management that deploys the technologies provided by the SmartEdge project. It has been measured that around 30% of accidents at intersections with traffic lights are rear-end collisions. The dangerous moment comes when the green
