Intel, AT&T & GE Partner for Smart City Project in Portland, OR

Street lights connected to the internet are monitoring the volume and speed of traffic in the center to Portland, Oregon. Over 200 traffic sensors are mounted inside the street lights at three dangerous and busy streets, hoping to ultimately reduce the number of accidents on the streets. The sensors record counts of vehicles and pedestrians and track vehicle speeds 24 hours a day. Traffic engineers from the Portland Bureau of Transportation will mine the data produced by the sensors to improve safety and optimize the flow of traffic in the city. Only the cities of Atlanta and San Diego have installed similar safety sensors and Portland is the first to test the sensors ability to count bikes. 6/18 BusinessWire
