Velodyne Lidar, Inc. today announced its Intelligent Infrastructure Solution won the GeoBuiz Summit Award. Velodyne’s smart city solution was recognized for excellence in innovation in the Mapping Technology category.
Intelligent Infrastructure Solution, combining Velodyne’s award-winning lidar sensors and Bluecity’s AI software, 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.
The full stack solution is deployed across three continents, including systems rolled out in Texas, Florida, Nevada, California, New Jersey, Missouri and Canada.
Intelligent Infrastructure Solution 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.
By improving traffic flow and reducing congestion, Intelligent Infrastructure Solution can improve energy efficiency and reduces greenhouse gas emissions for a more sustainable future. Earlier this year, the solution won the 2022 SXSW Innovation Awards from the South by Southwest Conference and Festivals.
“Velodyne’s Intelligent Infrastructure Solution was the standout system in our Mapping Technology category,” said Anusuya Datta, Editor – Americas, Geospatial World. “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,” said Sally Frykman, Chief Marketing Officer, Velodyne Lidar. “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.”
GeoBuiz Summit is a one-of-a-kind geospatial business leaders conference that is held by Geospatial World, a premier media outlet that advances geospatial knowledge in the world economy and society. Geospatial World recently featured Velodyne Lidar CEO Dr. Ted Tewksbury in an article about how Velodyne’s lidar sensors and software are playing an important role in applications including in geospatial and mapping, as well as last mile delivery, industrial and robotics, manufacturing and infrastructure.
