Velodyne Lidar Launches Breakthrough Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, Media Reports
May 19, 2021 | By Velodyne Lidar

Velodyne Lidar introduced its Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, which is designed to solve some of the most challenging and pervasive infrastructure problems, reported Geospatial World.

The Intelligent Infrastructure Solution combines “Velodyne’s award-winning lidar sensors and Bluecity’s powerful artificial intelligence (AI) software to monitor traffic networks and public spaces,” noted AiThority.

ITS International noted in coverage of the launch that Velodyne’s “product offers a lower price point because a single lidar sensor installed on a traffic pole can cover an entire intersection or highway section compared to radar- and camera-based systems that typically need multiple sensors. Velodyne’s Lidar sensors do not identify individuals’ facial characteristics – and lidar has an advantage in privacy over camera-only systems because its does not record details like hair and skin colour.”

SmartCitiesWorld wrote how the Rutgers Center for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation (CAIT) selected the solution “as a ‘cornerstone’ technology for its Middlesex County – Smart Mobility Testing Ground (MC-SMTG) project.” The article quoted Dr Ali Maher, professor and director, Rutgers Centre for Advanced Infrastructure and Transportation, saying:

“Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution captures data on various traffic activity including vehicles, pedestrians and bicyclists 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.”

A story in Lidar News, quoted Velodyne CEO Anand Gopalan discussing the Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, saying:

“As Velodyne looks at a world with connected and autonomous vehicles, we know that infrastructure will play a critical role in moving this industry forward. Our solution, powered by Bluecity’s AI-powered traffic monitoring software platform, will be key in the efforts to transform our roads and transportation infrastructure into smart cities, paving the way for a more sustainable, safer future.”

Other media that covered the Intelligent Infrastructure Solution news included Financial Post, GIS Café, Highways Today, Informed Infrastructure, Lidar Magazine, Public Works and Safe Car News.

The solution generates real-time data analytics and predictions, which can help to improve traffic and crowd flow efficiency, advance sustainability and protect vulnerable road users.
