Russian Railways started to test the first trains with artificial intelligence.
Locomotives for testing are equipped with Cognitive Rail Pilot system. It is aimed at reducing the number of accidents on railways: it uses computer vision to detect objects on the rail tracks (other trains, points, tracks, people, traffic lights, etc.), assesses the situation, informs the driver about the danger, and, if the driver does not respond, the system can make necessary decisions.
