Webinar: How Open Technology Enabled the World’s Smartest Intersection and Innovation in Detroit

The World’s Smartest Intersection is built on open architecture, allowing cities and their partners to create innovative solutions to age-old infrastructure problems. What started as an asset for the traffic team, quickly became a city-wide platform for innovation. Issues traditionally left to expensive, and proprietary vendors were solved by innovation on top of the Miovision platform.

The World’s Smartest Intersection expanded the innovation ecosystem, allowing the city to work with other vendors, academics, start-ups, public sector employees, and anyone else looking to build city-specific solutions. Because of its open platform, the World’s Smartest Intersection allowed Detroit to choose the technology they needed, rather than dealing with the traditional constraints of vendor lock-in.

Join our webinar on Wednesday, August 29 at 1pm EST to learn about how open technology enabled partnerships and innovation within the City of Detroit.

In this webinar you'll learn about:

  • The police department in Detroit is now able to use Miovision technology to provide patrol cars with Emergency Vehicle Preemption (EVP) as well as a portal for monitoring intersections.
  • A partnership with Geotab reduced travel time for commercial vehicles and enabled new revenue streams for the city through Freight Signal Priority (FSP).
  • Other innovators like Wayne State University and App developers were able to use Miovision technology to develop and build new applications to benefit the city.
