Company Launches Intelligent Intersections to Aid Drivers
Feb. 25, 2020—Mobility technology company Continental has launched two intelligent intersections equipped with short- and long-range sensors as well as a wrong-way driver detection system, according to SmartCitiesWorld.
The technology could allegedly improve traffic flow, reduce pollution and increase safety by communicating hidden dangers to approaching pedestrians and connected cars.
In addition to the sensors, the Auburn Hills Smart City Mobility and Transportation Hub also has a roadside unit and electronic control unit to process data and run the environment model and functions.
In its current phase, the Hub is collecting non-personally identifiable information such as location and movement patterns about pedestrians, vehicles and other intersection-related activity to create an environment model needed for infrastructure-to-everything (I2X) communication.
