Transportation is one of the biggest aspects of infrastructure that keeps the modern world functioning efficiently. It’s how we get imported foods like out-of-season produce and many of the other items people now see as basic wants like new electronics and clothing. Many of our roadways and routes were developed decades if not centuries ago, but that doesn’t mean that transportation can’t grow into something smarter.


With artificial intelligence, roadways become safer, smarter places through the use of personal assistants, AI vehicle maintenance help, and even autonomous, self-driving commercial vehices.


Check out the top ten AI companies in the transportation industry to watch right now!



Exploride has brought an augmented reality, artificial intelligence, and machine vision solution to automobiles. Exploride bridges the gap between non-intrusive diagnostics, hands-free environment control, and communication with the outside world into one package. Best of all, the screen is translucent, so it does not interfere with the driver’s view of the road.


Exploride offers insight into maintenance needs, reckless driving habits, and usage statistics. Exploride monitors fuel usage, average fuel mileage, time spent driving, and more.







AImotive has brought a hardware agnostic platform for integrating self-driving technology into vehicles today. AImotive enables drivers to adapt older vehicles to their platform and prevent the need to buy an entirely new vehicle.


AImotive employs depth sensing machine vision technology as well as a neural network to adapt to the laws, weather, and driving environment of the location in which it is operating.
