Building on a statewide pedestrian safety campaign, the Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility (NCAM) teamed up with the GENIVI Alliance, an industry alliance focused on open in-vehicle infotainment software for the connected car, on a vehicle-to-city communication pilot project aimed at addressing the city’s top priorities to improve pedestrian safety and traffic flow in Las Vegas.
The pilot demonstrates how vehicle communications technology and vehicle data can integrate with the existing transportation infrastructure and will deliver information to drivers regarding road conditions and other road users including pedestrians.
The key technology partner is the GENIVI Alliance, who will deploy its open Remote Vehicle Interaction (RVI) technology to capture information from equipped vehicles and manage vehicle-to-server, round-trip communication of the data and actionable messaging.
Nevada CAM and Nexar – a technology company providing the world’s first vehicle-to-vehicle network for preventing road collisions and enabling autonomous mobility – are collaborating create the first statewide vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) network in the country. This unprecedented collaboration is designed to enhance safety on Nevada’s roads and highways, spur economic development and job creation in the state, and introduce a series of innovative smart transportation systems that will optimize infrastructure management, regional planning and inform policy throughout Nevada.
Waycare’s predictive analytics platform optimizes city traffic management and is empowering the future of city mobility by combining city data along with real-time in-vehicle information, and deep learning technologies, allowing cities to know their roads like never before. Its recently launched pilot program, in partnership with the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC), aims to help prevent traffic crashes and congestion on roads in Southern Nevada.
The Pedestrian Safety Pilot Project is a collaborative partnership between the City of Las Vegas, Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility (Nevada CAM) and the Regional Transportation Commission of Southern Nevada (RTC). It aims to use innovative technology solutions in an effort to reduce pedestrian injuries and fatalities, as well as promote safety on Southern Nevada roadways and sidewalks. The Pedestrian Safety Pilot Project is working closely with industry partners on the first national pedestrian test using infrastructure LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) sensor technology that will potentially allow motorists to receive advance alerts of pedestrians crossing streets and other objects in their path. The pilot will be conducted by the end of the year and evaluated through mid-2018.
The city of Las Vegas charter for becoming a smart city is to provide safe, reliable and efficient civic technology that stimulates economic growth. The Innovation District in downtown Las Vegas serves as a proving ground for emerging technologies.
