Partners Innoviz Technologies and Sensagrate unveil what they are calling a Smart Corridor at the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). Essentially, Sensagrate integrates InnovizOne LiDAR with its SensaVision computer-vision platform to promote pedestrian and driver safety through intelligent traffic analytics and data collection.
The Smart Corridor gathers data on traffic volume and other roadside safety metrics for root cause analysis of pedestrian-related incidents. Powered by NVIDIA jetson edge computing, it will also test smart sensing for intersections and vehicle-to-everything applications. In addition to sensors on the infrastructure, the platform is connected with UCLA’s autonomous vehicle to provide greater analytics.
Reportedly, the InnovizOne LiDAR suits smart city applications because it provides accurate data during adverse weather and lighting conditions, and its robust design ensures durability over time. The LiDAR does not impinge on privacy, unlike other sensors that may have difficulty complying with GDPR and other privacy laws.
Omer Keilaf, Co-Founder and CEO of Innoviz, said, “Innoviz and Sensagrate both firmly believe that LiDAR-based intelligent traffic decisions will improve traffic flow and reduce traffic congestion, leading to a decrease in road fatalities and carbon emissions. We’re looking forward to scaling this solution across the US and globally.”
