An Automotive World article on the award states IIS “creates a real-time 3D map of roads and intersections. It provides precise traffic monitoring and analytics that are not possible with other types of sensors like cameras, radar or inductive loops.”
A post in The Auto Channel quotes Anusuya Datta, Editor – Americas, Geospatial World, saying:
“Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution was the standout system in our Mapping Technology category. The solution is transforming infrastructure, enabling governments to build a data-driven plan to create a safer, more sustainable traffic network.”
“Our solution supports cities throughout the world as they work to implement street improvements, policy changes and educational efforts that will protect vulnerable road users. Intelligent Infrastructure Solution advances Velodyne’s mission of creating smart technologies for a world in motion and their vision of science in service of safety.”
The Velodyne news release on the award notes how IIS “enables cities and states to take a proactive approach on safety by offering real-time multimodal analytics of not only vehicles, but also vulnerable road users. It is helping communities understand root causes of near-miss collisions, red light running and different types of roadway user behavior.”
