Hayden AI launches new tool to calculate emissions savings
Hayden AI, an artificial intelligence and machine learning technologies company, has built an emissions calculator for transit agencies to measure the environmental impact of automated bus lane enforcement (ABLE) technology.
The new online tool highlights how automated enforcement keeps bus lanes clear of illegally parked vehicles, reducing emissions by increasing bus speeds and keeping buses on schedule.
Using publicly available data from the Bureau of Transportation Statistics, past ABLE deployments, and the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, Hayden AI’s emissions calculator hones in on greenhouse gas emissions saved by increasing bus speeds through ABLE adoption. The calculator outputs the number of metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions saved by ABLE and what these amounts mean in an everyday context, such as gallons of gas saved or number of smartphones charged.
