Morgan State University, a historically Black college in Baltimore, hosted U.S. Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg for a campus visit and tour of its National Transportation Center lab. Velodyne’s IIS was a featured part of the Secretary’s tour in the University’s Urban Mobility and Equity Center. Secretary Buttigieg reviewed various sensor outputs generated by Velodyne’s Ultra Puck and discussed potential IIS applications with Morgan State students. The solution, deployed in partnership with Bluecity and Iteris, is installed at one of the main intersections into the university to collect traffic data and safety analytics.
The U.S. Department of Transportation’s work implementing new infrastructure programs means more investment by the public sector into the latest transportation technologies. New programs under the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law – like the Safe Streets and Roads for All and SMART grant program – will advance safety, equity and sustainability on our roads.
Buttigieg said, “We’re living through a period of extraordinary change in technology, some of the technologies that are being developed and managed right here.”
“We are seeing our solution in action across the globe, providing real-time data and analytics on things like near-misses and vulnerable road user activity,” said Sally Frykman, Chief Marketing Officer, Velodyne Lidar. “With pedestrian fatalities at an all-time high and disproportionately represented across disadvantaged communities, reliable and high performing technology can bring much needed safety to the underserved.”
