Innoviz Technologies, and Sensagrate, a leader in smart city technology that enables real-time traffic, pedestrian, and cyclist safety on roadways, announced a joint smart intersection corridor pilot at UCLA.
Sensagrate integrates InnovizOne LiDARs with SensaVision, a computer vision platform, fusing them with data from radar and camera to create a smart corridor at an intersection at the UCLA campus. Innoviz and Sensagrate will tackle smart city challenges across Arizona through partnerships with government transportation departments to pilot emerging technology using LiDAR sensors.
The SensaVision Platform, gathers data on traffic volume and other roadside safety metrics for root cause analysis of pedestrian-related incidents, improving pedestrian and automobile safety. The smart corridor will test smart sensing for intersections powered by Innoviz and Sensagrate via (I2V) and vehicle-to-everything (V2X) applications, all powered by NVIDIA jetson edge computing. In addition, the platform is further connected with UCLA’s autonomous vehicle, enhancing V2X analytics. Results and insights are expected ahead of October, which is National Pedestrian Safety Month.
InnovizOne LiDAR fits for smart city applications because it provides accurate data despite adverse weather and reduced lighting conditions, and has a long lifetime. InnovizOne LiDAR does not impinge on privacy, unlike other sensors that may have difficulty complying with GDPR and other privacy laws.
Innoviz’s projects in smart city applications is a new demonstration of its innovation capability, following its significant automotive design win with CARIAD SE for Volkswagen Brands in August 2022.

This is a new application of the Lidar, with a higher complexity compared to the stationary speed measurement systems already on the market and used by the police. We will see how robust are these system regarding the risk of interference between multiple lidars.
