The HORIBA Institute for Mobility and Connectivity2 (HIMaC2) in the University of California, Irvine (UCI) Samueli School of Engineering is deploying Velodyne Lidar’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, reported Bloomberg.
HIMaC2 plans to equip 25 intersections at UCI and the adjacent City of Irvine with the Intelligent Infrastructure Solution as part of a major study on improving traffic and energy efficiency, road safety and air quality, wrote Anthony Davis in Highways Today.
UCI Engineering Professor Scott Samuelsen is quoted in a Lidar News story saying:
“The program looks to advance connected and autonomous transportation and show how they can contribute to smarter, safer infrastructure for our communities. By deploying Velodyne’s automated monitoring and control in an intersection network, backbone data can be generated and utilized to demonstrate improved safety, energy efficiency and traffic flow to which cities aspire. With its deployment at 25 intersections, this initiative will be the largest lidar-based traffic monitoring solution in the world.”
The Intelligent Infrastructure Solution combines Velodyne’s award-winning lidar sensors with powerful AI software to monitor traffic networks and public spaces.
