LAS VEGAS — City and state officials are partnering with Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NTT) Corp. to deploy sensors across 30 city blocks to gather information about how vehicles, bikes, and pedestrians move around downtown. The data will then be used to offer predictive insight into how transportation behavior is likely to occur in the future, given certain situations and variables, Government Technology reports.

The project, which has been collecting data for about 45 days, grew out of a “proof of concept” pilot begun in Las Vegas’ Innovation District, which develops smart city projects by testing them in a real-world setting. The partnership with NTT offers the company an opportunity to further develop its smart city technologies, which could be marketed to other municipalities or states.

Collecting and analyzing data provides feedback to transportation and safety officials, giving them the kinds of data need to possibly redesign streets or signage, according to the report. The data being collected is owned by Las Vegas, and does not include detailed information that could identify residents or visitors. For the full story, click here.
