A post in Lidar News noted, the awards “have a highly competitive review process and honor the 50 most transformative smart cities projects in the world.”
An Automotive World story quoted Jon Barad, Velodyne’s Vice President of Business Development, saying:
“The Smart 50 Award recognizes Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution as one the 50 best examples of smart cities technology at work in the world. The award demonstrates how this innovative lidar-based approach can transform roads and transportation infrastructure into smart cities, creating sustainable, safer communities.”
The Intelligent Infrastructure Solution is deployed in multiple North America cities, including in Quebec and British Columbia, with upcoming installations in New Jersey. To qualify for a Smart 50 Award, solutions must have achieved results at a municipal scale or equivalent.
