Title AI Application: Traffic Accident Predictions

A country’s progress depends highly on the mobility of transportation it provides. Daily increasing demand in transportation is maximizing the chances of road crashes. Not only in underdeveloped countries but also in developed countries, road accidents have become an issue which should be resolved. Behavior of street users, Road conditions, and infrastructure of roads and increasing demands of motor cars are causing an increase in road accidents day after day. Our objectives include research for the identification of traits which are directly or indirectly linked to foundations of road accidents and also includes training of model using machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques which will be able to predict traffic accidents and high light causes of such accidents so that concerned authorities can optimize traffic routes, improve road designs and prioritize maintenances of road.
