Bus on the edge: Continuous monitoring of traffic and infrastructure

Two transit buses in different environments will be equipped with cameras and an edge computer connected to a cellular network for time critical and WiFi for high bandwidth communication. The computer detects relevant events and saves data of interest in a privacy preserving manner. This system will enable many mobility relevant observations related to traffic, weather, infrastructure, or disruptions. The research team will implement several of them, the major one will be landslide prediction. The team will partner with RoadBotics to commercialize the system.
