ANNOUNCING TRANSOFT’S SUPPORT FOR THE ITE VISION ZERO DESIGN SANDBOX COMPETITION

Jan 20, 2021

ITE is now accepting expressions of interest for this year’s Vision Zero Design Sandbox Competition (supported by ITE’s Consultants Council). Transoft is pleased to participate alongside the City of Bellevue in this initiative, with our video-based road safety solutions being the key analytics tool for participants.

The Goal: Think beyond the traditional ways of assessing crash data based on historic information and move towards a more proactive approach by leveraging new near-miss data analytics and technology.

The Challenge: Using video collected from 6 intersections in the City of Bellevue and pre-processed using Transoft Solution’s AI-based road safety solutions, select 3 intersections and identify countermeasures. Demonstrate how automated conflict data being collected through innovative technologies can be used to gain new insights into safety problems and the selection of low-cost countermeasures at intersections.
