Australian AI specialists SenSen Networks has secured a $2.5 million deal with the City of Las Vegas to provide a range of intelligent transportation and smart city solutions.
The ASX-listed Victorian company’s technology will be used to help keep the city’s roads safe and congestion free by automating the enforcement of hundreds of bylaws associated with traffic and parking.
SenSen’s AI and video analytics expertise will reduce traffic congestion and help the city manage its parking issues more efficiently, the companies chief executive Dr Subhash Challa said . The agreement supports the City of Las Vegas’ goal to become a Smart City by 2025.
The initial deal, to be rolled out later this year, will see the introduction and management of two SenForce mobile parking enforcement units, as well as 80 of its Gemineye mobile units.
The contract will mark the first commercial roll-out of SenSen technology with a major US city, while the 80 Gemineye units to be deployed as part of the contract is the largest commercial sale to a single SenSen customer to date.
