Missouri ST Engineers Use Artificial Intelligence To Help Drivers Avoid Flooded Roads

Artificial intelligence could help deliver that information to motorists faster so to prevent people from being stranded on flooded roads, said Suzanna Long, the chair of engineering management and systems engineering at Missouri S&T.

They’re using a form of artificial intelligence called deep learning, in which computers imitates the human brain’s ability to process information to make decisions.

While the research could help rural and urban communities, providing timely flood warnings in rural areas could still be extremely difficult, said Christopher Engelbrecht, the emergency management liaison at MoDOT.

“We definitely want this in a form that we don’t have people as they’re driving looking at their phones, trying to find information if they’re already tied in on a map that’s already routing them somewhere,” he said.
