Lidar technology is emerging as an important component in creating smart city applications that improve public services, and enhance safety and quality of life.
Peter Brown wrote a story in Electronics 360 on how Velodyne Lidar has joined the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program to promote using lidar technology in smart city solutions.
The Electronics 360 piece quotes Jon Barad, Velodyne’s Vice President of Business Development, saying:
“The combination of Velodyne’s lidar and Qualcomm Technologies edge computing and 5G capabilities creates a powerful asset for developers to make their smart city ideas a potent solution. Participating in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program will help us connect with governments and solution providers to build lidar-based smart city applications that transform city infrastructure and services.
In an article on Velodyne joining the Qualcomm program, Geospatial World wrote:
“Smart city solutions can use Velodyne’s lidar sensors to measure and monitor conditions in areas such as pedestrian safety, vehicle traffic, parking space management, speed measurement, V2X communications, queue, and asset management, security, and more.”
Other media that covered the news included Highways Today, IoT Global Network and TMCnet.
