25 intersections to be equipped

Bluecity is happy to announce its involvement in a project that will have 25 intersections at the University of Irvine (UCI) and the adjacent City of Irvine, equipped with next generation, lidar traffic sensors and analytics technology. A $6M grant was awarded by the Vehicle Technology Office of the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), to develop, evaluate and deploy emerging and future connected and autonomous vehicle technologies.

Bluecity will work with the DOE Argonne National Laboratory (ANL), the UCI Institute of Transportation Studies, Toyota Motor of North America, Pony.ai, and Velodyne Lidar to deploy automated monitoring and control in an intersection network, so that backbone data can be generated and utilized to demonstrate improved safety, energy efficiency and traffic flow. Three fleets of ten vehicles, each with distinct modes of operation (independent driving, shared-use driving, and autonomous) will be utilized, and a workforce training program will also be developed.

Bluecity’s goal is to make streets safer for pedestrians, cyclists and motorists by offering municipalities and consulting firms our IndiGO traffic solution. IndiGO is a traffic data platform that combines lidar technology and AI to provide real-time traffic data and analytics.
