Seoul Robotics’ technology is to be distributed by Temple in the south-eastern states of the US as part of a new agreement.
It is Seoul Robotics’ first partnership with a transportation technology distributor in the US and will provide full-service, Lidar-based traffic and ITS solutions, including its SENSR solution, within public sector departments in Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina and Tennessee.
“Public-private collaborations are the future of smart city innovation and Seoul Robotics is already playing a leading role in developing these technologies,” said William Muller, vice president of business development at Seoul Robotics.
“Partnering with Temple unlocks an exciting opportunity to continue expanding access to transformative solutions, and will help Southeastern cities enhance visibility and understanding of vulnerable road users in order to improve infrastructure, mobility, safety, and efficiency.”
Seoul says cities "typically use 2D, thermal or AI colour camera-based systems, despite their inability to track pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicle movements, and the limited visibility of this technology at night and in harsh weather".
By contrast, it insists SENSR "uses the industry’s most accurate deep learning AI with dynamic weather-filtering capabilities to detect, track, and classify hundreds of street-level objects simultaneously within a 4cm accuracy day or night, regardless of weather conditions".
“We are proud to be offering 3D technology solutions at the forefront of this innovation,” said Forrest Temple, president of Temple. “This partnership with Seoul Robotics allows us to combine our expertise and reach with their state-of-the-art 3D perception to provide our customers with the most advanced technology to enhance operational safety and efficiency of smart infrastructure systems for smart cities."
