GRIDSMART Technologies, Inc. and Wave Mobile Solutions will host a DSRC V2X Vision Zero demo during ITS America San Jose 2016. Vision Zero will demonstrate how intelligent technology can be utilized to prevent traffic incidents, improve safety for vehicles and pedestrians, and identify problematic locations. 

The GRIDSMART iconic Bell Camera and a Wave Mobile Solutions FiberWire 8011 DSRC RSU will be installed at the corner of San Carlos and Market, directly in front of the Marriott Hotel. The GRIDSMART Bell Camera delivers a horizon to horizon view and utilizes novel tracking algorithms to track vehicles, bicycles and pedestrians. The Wave Mobile Solutions FiberWire 8011 DSRC Road Side Unit (RSU) is based on the latest DSRC security standards and supports a higher capacity turbo mode for applications such as video transmission. 

Vision Zero will utilize the San Jose VTA Lightrail. As the light rail approaches Market Street, upon detection of any of the following events by the GRIDSMART camera, the Wave Mobile Solutions DSRC RSU will send out DSRC basic safety messages, alerting the Wave Mobile Solutions DSRC OBU equipped light rail and DSRC OBU equipped vehicles of:

   pedestrians or bicycles in the cross walk

   vehicle in left hand turn lane next to approaching light rail

   bikes in the bike lane

Vision Zero will be held at the following times:

Monday, June 13: 12, 2, 4, 6 pm

Tuesday, June 14: 12, 2, 4 pm

Wednesday, June 15: 10 am, 12, 1:45 pm

To participate in Vision Zero, please meet at the GRIDSMART booth (507) 15 minutes prior to the scheduled time or email lauren.jochum@gridsmart.com.
