PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sep 10, 2020--

– the nation’s first smart city environment powered by real-world infrastructure and next-generation connectivity – today announced its strategic collaboration with the Bosch Building Technologies division to test, demonstrate and develop the future of video-as-a-sensor technology.

“Our 5G-enabled living laboratory will give Bosch the opportunity to push the limits of their technology in a real-world setting that is almost impossible to replicate in a closed lab, while enhancing overall city operations and the lives of our residents,” said Brian Johnson, city manager of Peachtree Corners. “The city of Peachtree Corners also provides Bosch a real-world showcase for their customers to come and experience their technology applied to an actual city, not just in concept.”

“Bosch video-as-a-sensor technology assists city planners in making informed decisions on traffic management that are based on real-time data around events happening at and around intersections,” said Lewis Stallworth, business development manager with Bosch. “Partnering with the City of Peachtree Corners and Curiosity Lab gives Bosch an opportunity to showcase and test its Intelligent Video Analytics with machine learning capabilities on the roadway of the future, with a connected intersection, autonomous vehicles, autonomous scooters and autonomous package delivery – all in a real-world environment. We are looking forward to helping the City of Peachtree Corners become a model for other cities in creating a smarter, safer and more sustainable transportation ecosystem."

“The addition of the most advanced video-as-a-sensor technology, along with Cradlepoint’s cellular router for testing failover connectivity, is another reflection of our city’s commitment to showcasing how government entities and the world’s top technology companies can and should work together to make the smart city vision a reality in the United States,” said Brandon Branham, chief technology officer and assistant city manager of Peachtree Corners. “It’s an honor to be working alongside Bosch to create another layer of smart infrastructure for Peachtree Corners – and we look forward to analyzing invaluable, actionable data in our central control center to make important decisions as we continue to improve our city into the future.”
