There is a growing commitment by governments worldwide to rebuild outdated transportation infrastructure systems. Leading the way is the 2.25 trillion-dollar proposal by the Biden Administration to invest in the modernization of vehicles, roads and transit systems.
A new smart solution could help to solve some of the most challenging and pervasive infrastructure problems – monitoring traffic networks and public spaces. The technology generates real-time data analytics and predictions, helping to improve traffic and crowd flow efficiency, advance sustainability and protect vulnerable road users.
The new solution combines Velodyne’s lidar sensors and Bluecity’s artificial intelligence (AI) software. “The acquisition and analysis of mobility data is crucial to integrating autonomous vehicles, and creating a safer pedestrian and cycling environment,” said Dr. Ali Maher, professor and director, Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation. “Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution captures data on various traffic activity in all types of environmental conditions. We envision the solution as playing a critical role in helping us create a safer environment for all road users.”
The system creates a real-time 3D map of roads and intersections, providing precise traffic monitoring and analytics. It reliably collects data in any lighting or weather condition, supporting 24/7, 365 days a year operation. The solution advances safety through multimodal analytics that detect various road users including, vehicles, pedestrians and cyclists. It can predict, diagnose and address road safety challenges, helping municipalities and other customers make informed decisions to take corrective action.
It can be used for safety analytics, traffic efficiency and sustainability, crowd analytics, vehicle to everything (V2X) communication, emergency services, and environmental protection.
