Pedestrian and Cyclist Intersection Safety Sandbox

This project seeks to advance a more strategic approach for testing applications of innovative solutions for Vision Zero. The District Department of Transportation (DDOT) intends to implement one or more pilot or demonstration projects that use emerging technology solutions to improve pedestrian and/or cyclist safety in intersections. In technology development, the term “sandbox” is used to refer to a testing environment that allows for safe testing of new software or code before implementation in a program or service. Borrowing from this idea, this project will designate a “sandbox” of a single intersection or corridor within the District to be used to safely pilot new technologies. This project will implement the sandbox with several emerging solutions and evaluate the outcomes. It is expected that many of the solutions will still be in research and development phases and that this project can help to shape those products while also providing valuable lessons learned for DDOT staff.
