Automotus joins Qualcomm Smart Cities program to promote safer, more sustainable streets
Automotus, a leading curb management technology company, announced it has joined the Qualcomm® Smart Cities Accelerator Program to promote safer, more sustainable city streets. Automotus brings a first-of-its-kind suite of automated curb management solutions that help cities address vehicle congestion challenges and create more cost-effective transportation systems.
Automotus’ computer vision technology has been deployed in hundreds of Smart Loading Zones around the U.S. to help cities, airports and fleets manage curb activity and invoicing, manage enforcement of curb-related violations and responsibly collect data to inform policy decisions. The technology has also been used to support the nation’s first Zero Emissions Delivery Zones to incentivize commercial fleet electrification.
“Recent growth in last-mile delivery has made our cities’ curb space more chaotic and congested than ever. Cities aren’t blind to this challenge—they just need the right solutions to address it,” said Armen Kazaryan, VP and General Manager at Automotus. “Through the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program, we look forward to reaching these cities and empowering them with the tools needed to create curb space that works for everyone.”
Launched in 2019 as part of the Qualcomm® Advantage Network, the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program is designed to connect cities, municipalities, government agencies, and enterprises with an ecosystem of providers to help deliver greater efficiencies, cost savings, safety, and sustainability. With proven expertise in commercially deployed solutions, program members include hardware and software providers, cloud solution providers, system integrators, design and manufacturing companies, as well as those offering end-to-end smart city solutions. By connecting members looking for smart city solutions, the program aims to enrich lives through the accelerated transformation of city infrastructure and services.
“Thanks to their state-of-the-art computer vision technologies, Automotus can help power the future of Smart Cities all across the world. Having Automotus as a member of the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program is a testament to how both companies are avidly advancing the digital transformation of cities and industries,” said Ashok Tipirneni, director, product management and head of platform product management, Smart Enterprise Solutions, Qualcomm Technologies, Inc.
Automotus’ technology easily attaches to existing infrastructure and is private by design to ensure personally identifiable information is never captured or shared for any purpose other than to facilitate parking payments and enforcements. To learn more about Automotus, visit www.automotus.co.
