Chattanooga Adding 86 New Smart City Intersections Through $4.5 Million Federal Grant

Seoul Robotics, the company powering smart 3D infrastructure solutions, on Wednesday announced it will expand its partnership with the Chattanooga Department of Innovation Delivery and Performance, and the Center of Urban Informatics and Progress (CUIP) at UTC, the smart city and urbanization research center, to deliver 86 new smart city intersections.

Officials said it is the largest urban Internet of Things deployment of its kind in the country.

The U.S. Department of Transportation will fund the $4.5 million endeavor “to create a living laboratory that will provide researchers unparalleled mapping, tracking, and identification insights into the state of mobility in the city.”

Intersections will be installed throughout 2023 and 2024, and, once finalized, the city of Chattanooga will capture over 100 intersections total, covering the entire downtown area.
