Smart 3D infrastructure specialist Seoul Robotics is partnering Temple Inc. to expand its presence in the South Eastern United States. This is Seoul Robotics’ first partnership with a transportation technology distributor in the US and will expand the company’s deployment of smart infrastructure for cities.

The partnership will provide full-service, LiDAR-based traffic and ITS solutions within public sector departments and make Seoul Robotics the first 3D perception company in Temple’s solutions portfolio.

Cities typically use 2D, thermal, or AI colour camera based systems. According to Seoul Robotics, these have problems tracking pedestrian, cyclist, and vehicle movements, and have limited visibility at night and in harsh weather. LiDAR specifically captures positioning and location data which, when paired with Seoul Robotics’ perception software, delivers more detailed insights. SENSR uses the industry’s most accurate deep learning AI with dynamic weather-filtering capabilities to detect, track, and classify hundreds of street-level objects simultaneously within a 4 centimetre accuracy day or night, regardless of weather conditions.

“Public-private collaborations are the future of smart city innovation and Seoul Robotics is already playing a leading role in developing these technologies,” said William Muller, Vice President of Business Development at Seoul Robotics. “Partnering with Temple unlocks an exciting opportunity to continue expanding access to transformative solutions, and will help Southeastern cities enhance visibility and understanding of vulnerable road users in order to improve infrastructure, mobility, safety, and efficiency.”

“We are proud to be offering 3D technology solutions at the forefront of this innovation,” said Forrest Temple, President of Temple, Inc. “This partnership with Seoul Robotics allows us to combine our expertise and reach with their state-of-the-art 3D perception to provide our customers with the most advanced technology to enhance operational safety and efficiency of smart infrastructure systems for smart cities.”
