PEACHTREE CORNERS, Ga., May 15, 2024 — Lidar technology company Seyond has partnered with the city of Peachtree Corners, Ga., a 5G smart city powered by connected infrastructure, as well as the city's Curiosity Lab, to deploy and validate its lidar solutions in a real-world environment. The collaboration aims to create safer streets and smoother traffic flow for both vehicles and vulnerable road users (VRUs).

With a range of up to 1640 ft, Seyond’s lidar system can map large environments, which would usually require multiple traffic cameras. The hardware, originally developed and tested for autonomous vehicles, is manufactured to be automotive-grade and has been designed to withstand extreme weather conditions. The solution is currently deployed within Curiosity Lab’s smart city ecosystem and at a select intersection in Peachtree Corners. These locations use a combination of Seyond’s lidar, the OmniVidi perception service software platform, and Blue-Band’s "Integrator AI" solution to provide real-time 3D mapping of the areas, with both vehicle and pedestrian object detection.

The combined technologies collect real-world data that can be used to implement traffic and VRU signal solutions to make intersections safer and more efficient, while also protecting citizen privacy, according to Seyond. The collected data from Seyond and Blue-Band’s analysis can be used by the city to adjust traffic signals, pedestrian crossing signals, and intersection design, and will address specific safety and efficiency needs based on real-world data.

Curiosity Lab is a 5G-enabled intelligent mobility and smart city "living laboratory" owned and operated by Peachtree Corners. The lab is designed as a proving ground for IoT, mobility, and smart city emerging technologies.

Lidar, short for light detection and ranging, is a remote sensing technology that uses laser light to measure distances and generate precise, three-dimensional information about the shape and characteristics of objects and surfaces. Lidar systems typically consist of a laser scanner, a GPS receiver, and an inertial measurement unit (IMU), all integrated into a single system. Here is how lidar works: Laser emission: A laser emits laser pulses, often in the form of rapid and repetitive laser...
