With the initial investment from UTC, operational support from CDOT, communications infrastructure from EPB, and design and architecture support from TEC, the Smart City Corridor has been launched with a wide array of sensors, computing resources, and experimental wireless networks which have allowed cutting edge research across the Smart City ecosystem. The inaugural research challenge posited by CDOT that the University has initially focused on entails processing information from a variety of sensors, including cameras, LIDAR, RADAR and audio to better understand how pedestrians are using our cities transportation networks, and prioritize deployments and additional research opportunities that will continue to address our city’s Vision Zero goals.
Designed for Collaboration
Our testbed—a 1.2 mile, real-world sandbox—is designed to facilitate early stage research and development. Testing and data collection relies on real-world events, providing the most authentic results. Gathering data from the real world successfully integrates the incalculable nuance and complexity of urban living into research. Our testbed is specifically designed for collaboration with data made easily accessible to partners, a platform to handle more sensors, and more. Researchers are able to use our testbed remotely.
