Seoul Robotics, a transportation technology and smart infrastructure company, has chosen the Atlanta region for its US operations, setting up its technology development and testing at the Curiosity Lab in Peachtree Corners, Georgia. The 3D perception technology the company is developing helps create a map of the urban landscape, using data from sensors including light-detection and ranging (lidar). Previously deployed in Chattanooga, its technology has been used in the build-out of 86 new smart intersections. Seoul Robotics has chosen Peachtree Corners thanks to its commitment to nurturing smart city technologies. Brandon Branham, assistant city manager and chief technology officer, said the company’s technology was able to “start merging” data from “different video, or lidar or other types of sensors” to create “valuable insights and programs”.
