Hayden AI's Patented Blockchain System Secures Future of Traffic Enforcement

September 05, 2023

Traditionally, when traffic enforcement events are recorded by automated systems like traffic cameras, there is a significant problem: Namely, the authenticity and integrity of the digital evidence are not adequately tracked throughout its lifecycle. This means that from the moment the evidence is captured (to when it's reviewed by relevant parties like traffic enforcement officers), there's no systematic process in place to ensure that it hasn't been tampered with or altered.

This lack of verification can lead to doubts about the accuracy and reliability of the evidence, potentially undermining the fairness of traffic enforcement procedures. It's a critical issue that affects both internal and external stakeholders, from law enforcement agencies to the legal system itself.

So, Hayden AI’s newly patented traffic enforcement data management system using blockchain can overcome this issue.

Hayden AI is at the forefront of AI and machine learning (ML)-driven solutions for real-world challenges. Their innovative mobile perception system serves a diverse range of applications, including enforcing bus lane and bus stop regulations and developing digital twin models, among others. Their clients rely on this technology to enhance transit efficiency, improve street safety, and contribute to a sustainable future.

Hayden AI takes a privacy-first stance, prioritizing compliance with security and privacy regulations and safeguarding individuals' personal data while promoting innovation.

And now, Hayden AI’s newly patented blockchain-powered data management technology uses a distributed ledger to track each transaction of data with a unique and unrepeatable identifier generated by a cryptographic operation.

This system creates a verifiable chain of custody for each traffic enforcement evidence package, keeping a record every time the data is processed, modified or reviewed. It can further secure the data by partitioning it into individual components and tracking them through multiple blockchains.

“Keeping governments safe from cyberattacks is critical to the success of camera-assisted traffic enforcement programs. Our improved, verifiable chain of custody technology makes this possible,” said Bryan Shea, Vice President of Data Security and Privacy at Hayden AI and former criminal intelligence leader at the Chicago Police Department. “This patent cements our status as a data management and security leader in vision-based automated traffic enforcement.”

The patent was awarded August 15 and labeled U.S. Patent No. 11,727,795 B1.
