Smart Cities Dive: Denver’s Traffic Crossings To Get An AI Makeover

Traffic crossings in Denver will use an artificial intelligence (AI) platform to boost safety under a partnership announced last week with internet of things (IoT) hardware and software company Boulder AI.

A series of cameras — both in the intersection and at its periphery — monitor pedestrians and the various objects that pass through the crosswalks, including bikes, wheelchairs and baby strollers. The cameras assign speed vectors to everything in the intersection and predict trajectory to determine pedestrians’ intent to cross. The technology can then respond to this prediction in as little as 10 milliseconds to adjust the timing at the crosswalk.
