Connection Inflection: Verizon Building Safer, Smarter Cities Using NVIDIA Metropolis
To help make cities safer, smarter and greener, they need to be connected. And few companies know more about connecting than Verizon.
It’s joined nearly 100 other companies already using NVIDIA Metropolis, our edge-to-cloud video platform for building smarter, faster deep learning-powered applications.
Verizon is a leading technology company with the nation’s most reliable network service. Its Smart Communities group has been busy working with cities to connect communities and set them up for the future, including attaching NVIDIA Jetson-powered smart camera arrays to street lights and other urban vantage points.
“LED street lighting delivers big savings in operating expenditures,” said David Tucker, head of product management in the Smart Communities Group at Verizon. “Rollout is happening fast across the globe and cities are expanding their lighting infrastructure to become a smart city platform that will enable them to link applications now and in the future, helping to create efficiency savings and a new variety of citizen services.”
The arrays — which Verizon calls video nodes — use Jetson’s deep learning prowess to analyze multiple streams of video data to look for ways to improve traffic flow, enhance pedestrian safety, optimize parking in urban areas, and more.
Beta tests using proprietary datasets and models generated from neural network training are wrapping up on both coasts. Details of its commercial release are expected soon from Verizon.
