Smart traffic flow monitoring with lidar edge computing

Vehicle and pedestrian flow monitoring have the potential to make our roads and infrastructure smarter and safer by providing insights that allow them to better allocate resources, optimize energy, cut emissions and reduce accidents. However, to be impactful, flow monitoring requires precise perception and situational awareness. In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the different perception technologies and processing techniques that can be used to tackle these situations and dive into the value provided by edge lidar processing. Specific use cases and real-life lidar recordings will be used to illustrate the practical applications.
