Curiosity Lab is rolling out traffic optimization technology for 5G-connected smart city Peachtree Corners in a new partnership with video software developer Network Optix.

Under the partnership, the smart city will integrate Network Optix’s Nx Go solution into its IoT Control Room to collect data from traffic camera feeds and sensors installed on roads to inform infrastructure development and improve road and pedestrian safety.

The collaboration marks the first time Nx Go has been deployed as a full solution in the U.S.

"We're proud to be the first city to fully integrate the Nx Go solution for transportation infrastructure in the U.S.," said Brandon Branham, Curiosity Lab’s executive director. "Our IoT Control room has been a model for how other smart cities across the world can aggregate massive amounts of data from sensors across connected infrastructure into the future – so it was only fitting that we partner with Network Optix to process and display traffic sensor data.

“From fixed lidar to traffic camera feeds delivered over the 5G network, this data is critical to city operations that ensure roadway safety for autonomous vehicles, regular drivers and pedestrians."

Nx Go collates data from an array of sensors into a single network for simplified operation and management.

At Peachtree Corners, the network will incorporate data from sensors installed around the city’s cellular vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) powered roadways, including devices at light and traffic signal fixtures, crosswalks and buildings, which communicate with connected vehicles, autonomous vehicles and pedestrians. 

Nx Go stores this data to allow greater insight into traffic patterns, generating reports on factors such as intersection analytics, car counts and lane usage.

"This is the only location with the full range of Nx Go technologies available, allowing us to fully showcase the extent of sensors, lidar and more the city has deployed across their smart city ecosystem," said Marc Faubert, Network Optix’s director of mobility. "Having Nx Go as the visual to display such technology gives Peachtree Corners a single pane of glass to be proactive and monitor, evaluate and implement various strategies to improve the city.”
