iRASTE: AI-based to make roads in India safer to drive

Recently Artificial Intelligence-based ‘iRASTE’ solution is being implemented in India to make roads safer for vehicles.

  • iRASTE is the acronym for ‘Intelligent Solutions for Road Safety through Technology and Engineering’.
  • This project is being implemented in Nagpur to tackle the problem of road accidents.
  • The project is supported by the Department of Science and Technology (DST). It is being implemented by IIT Hyderabad.
  • It is being implemented under the National Mission on Interdisciplinary Cyber-Physical Systems (NM-ICPS) of DST.
  • The objective of NM-ICPS is to build a strong foundation and a seamless system for Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) technologies. This objective will be achieved by coordinating and integrating nationwide efforts involving knowledge generation, human resource development, research etc.

Importance of iRASTE:

  • It provides quick, accurate and economical solutions to prevent potential road accidents.
  • It forecasts and identifies hazards on the road to alert drivers in a timely manner. Additionally, it is also equipped with a collision warning system.
  • It identifies ‘grey spots’ on the roads. For this, it analyzes data and mobility by continuously monitoring mobility hazards across the entire road network.
  • Gray spots are places on the road that, if not taken care of, can become black spots.

Road Safety Goals:

  • A target has been set to reduce road accident deaths by 50% by the year
  • By the year 2030, all countries should have national laws limiting or prohibiting the use of mobile phones while driving.
  • By 2030, all countries will adopt one or more of the main United Nations legal regulations on road safety.

Steps taken for road safety in India-

  • Lane RoadNet (LRNet): It is a new framework to address the problems related to Indian roads.
  • Deep learning is used in this. It is designed with an integrated mechanism considering the lane and road parameters.
  • India is a signatory to the United Nations’ Brasilia Declaration on Reducing Road Accidents.
