Jacobs, Peachtree Corners and Qualcomm Technologies have jointly decided to deploy end-to-end smart solutions in one of the nation’s first smart city environments powered by real-world connected vehicle technology and infrastructure.
As a part of the working relationship, Qualcomm Technologies serves as an ecosystem enabler by providing technology solutions, while Jacobs manages the installation commission project delivery.
“We are pleased to be working with Jacobs and Peachtree Corners to build out a progressive smart city deployment. This implementation further exemplifies the value and leadership in the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program ecosystem and streamlined end-to-end deployment model capabilities,” said Sanjeet Pandit, Senior Director, Business Development and Global Head of Smart Cities, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc. “This C-V2X program with the Curiosity Lab and Jacobs not only highlights the ability to implement digital road infrastructure to optimize traffic and enable safer streets across global cities but our continued commitment to offer advanced solutions for traffic safety. This project is paving the way as an example of what communities can replicate and I expect these advanced end-to-end solutions to be an integral part of future smart city and smart connected spaces rollouts.”
“In addition to procuring, installing and testing the Internet of Things infrastructure, we’re bringing planning expertise to help Peachtree Corners realize its smart city vision,” said Tom Meinhart, people and places solutions Senior Vice President and Regional Director, Jacobs. “From procurement to closeout, Jacobs and our partners work to improve safety and connectivity, while enhancing digital infrastructure and smart capabilities in the city.”
The program aims to demonstrate the continued momentum of smart cities and spaces, with Peachtree Corners serving as a model for other municipalities as they look to deploy smart solutions and programs.
Jacobs, Peachtree Corners and Qualcomm Technologies are working together to deploy the company’s technology solutions, focusing initially on roadside infrastructure, traffic management and road safety, with the implementation of Cellular Vehicle-to-Everything (C-V2X) technology.
As a part of the program, the city will work with Commsignia to feature roadside units (RSUs) equipped with Qualcomm Technologies’ C-V2X solution. Utility vehicles equipped with Qualcomm Technologies’ C-V2X solutions will also be utilized to demonstrate vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) direct communications.
Peachtree Corners intends to roll out additional smart solutions in the future by collaborating with Qualcomm Technologies smart cities ecosystem and Qualcomm IoT Services Suite verticals.
