Seoul Robotics and ALP.Lab have announced a partnership aimed at advancing the European Union’s goal of zero road fatalities by 2050. The collaboration will focus on providing 3D perception traffic safety systems for the DACH region and Central Europe. The LiDAR systems developed by Seoul Robotics and powered by their SENSR perception software will offer detailed insights into accident-prone intersections.
One of the key challenges in achieving the EU’s goal of zero road fatalities is reducing the number of bicycle crashes. While progress has been made in improving safety across various modes of transport, bicycle fatalities have remained high and have even seen an increase in serious crash-related injuries. Many of these accidents occur at intersections.
To address this issue, Seoul Robotics and ALP.Lab have developed a LiDAR-based system that can better understand the interactions between vulnerable road users, such as cyclists and pedestrians, and vehicles. The system utilizes SENSR software to collect and analyze precise and high-frequency data on road user movements and specific interactions at intersections.
The solution was recently deployed in Salzburg, Austria, in collaboration with Salzburg Research and the mobility laboratory zukunftswege.at. The system was used to analyze two high-risk intersections in the city, where it collected data to gain insights into road user behavior and conflict situations. The findings will inform improvement measures to enhance road safety for all users.
The partnership between Seoul Robotics and ALP.Lab enables easy access to infrastructure and real-world laboratory environments, allowing for the direct transmission of test results to regional authorities. This collaboration will not only support the Austrian region but also pave the way for expanding the technology to other cities across Europe.
Improving safety for cyclists and pedestrians not only reduces road fatalities but also promotes active mobility, leading to congestion reduction, lower emissions, and healthier populations. By combining the expertise of Seoul Robotics and ALP.Lab, the partnership aims to provide valuable data insights that can be used to build smarter and safer roads, contributing to the EU’s vision of zero road deaths by 2050.
Seoul Robotics’ SENSR software is known for its industry-leading deep learning AI capabilities and its ability to accurately detect and track street-level objects, even in adverse weather conditions. The software is sensor agnostic and can seamlessly integrate multiple LiDAR technologies to provide a comprehensive view of intersections and connecting roads.
Salzburg Research, ALP.Lab, and Seoul Robotics are committed to leveraging the power of data and advanced technology to drive innovation in the transportation sector. Through their collaboration, they aim to create a blueprint for mobility solutions and generate high-quality data for further analysis and application in smart city initiatives.
The partnership will soon expand beyond Austria, reaching Germany, Switzerland, and other parts of Central Europe. This expansion will enable more cities to benefit from Seoul Robotics’ 3D perception traffic safety systems and contribute to the EU’s goal of achieving zero road fatalities by 2050.
