New investment to make Chattanooga smart corridor largest in nation
The city of Chattanooga will add 86 new smart city intersections through funding from Seoul Robotics, a company that powers smart 3D infrastructure solutions. The company will expand its partnership with the Chattanooga Department of Innovation Delivery and Performance, and the Center of Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) at UTC, the smart city and urbanization research center in the largest urban Internet of Things deployment of this kind in the nation. The U.S. Department of Transportation has already funded $4.5 million in the creation of a living laboratory in Chattanooga that provides researchers with unparalleled mapping, tracking, and identification insights into the state of mobility in both Chattanooga and with wider applications for other communities. With the 86 new intersections, there will be more than 100 intersections covered in the downtown testbed including the city’s MLK Smart Corridor.
