Bosch is partnering with various organizations to pilot an intelligent traffic system on Detroit’s Woodward Avenue. The system will use video cameras equipped with on-board artificial intelligence for real-time monitoring and data collection. Bosch cameras and software will offer pedestrian, bike and vehicle detection and alert authorized vehicles about other road users in their proximity. They could also prioritize signal timing for large vehicles that can cause traffic blockages when they have to stop and start as well as for emergency vehicles. The system also has the potential to be scaled to facilitate adaptive signal timing throughout the corridor. The project will eventually include about 44 intersections along the M1 corridor.

Bosch is partnering with the Michigan Department of Transportation, the Federal Highway Administration, the City of Detroit, WSP Michigan, MH Corbin, Dera USA, and Wayne State University to pilot an intelligent traffic system along Woodward Avenue (M1) in Detroit. The system will use video cameras equipped with on-board artificial intelligence for real-time monitoring and data collection.

The Bosch cameras and software will provide pedestrian, bike, and vehicle detection, and alert authorized vehicles about other road users in their proximity. It could also prioritize signal timing for large vehicles that can cause traffic blockages when they have to stop and start, as well as for emergency vehicles. The system has the potential to be scaled to facilitate adaptive signal timing throughout the corridor.

The project will include about 44 intersections along the M1 corridor. The $11.5 million project is supported by $5 million in federal funding from the U.S. Department of Transportation, and is one of several partnerships with state transportation departments across the country that Bosch has used as proving grounds for its technology.

“As the urbanization of mobility starts to increase, and you see more demand for software-defined mobility, these use cases and test cases become much more important, so I believe in them 100 percent,” said Mike Mansuetti, president of Bosch in North America.

The pilot program aims to improve safety and efficiency on the busy M1 corridor. The system will use Bosch’s AI-enabled cameras and software to monitor traffic flow, detect incidents, and provide real-time information to drivers and transportation officials. The data collected by the cameras will be analyzed to identify trends and patterns that can inform future transportation planning and infrastructure development.

Bosch’s software business is a key part of the company’s growth strategy. The company has been investing heavily in developing software and services for connected and automated vehicles, as well as for smart cities and the internet of things. The M1 pilot program is just one example of how Bosch is leveraging its expertise in these areas to create innovative solutions for transportation and mobility.

In addition to the M1 project, Bosch has been working on several other initiatives to improve mobility and transportation infrastructure. The company has partnered with the City of Columbus, Ohio, on a smart city project that includes the deployment of autonomous shuttles and connected vehicle technology. Bosch is also working with the State of Michigan on a project to develop a connected vehicle corridor along I-94, which will use wireless communication technology to enable vehicles to share data and communicate with each other and with infrastructure.

Overall, Bosch is committed to using its technology and expertise to create safer, more efficient, and more sustainable transportation systems. The company’s investments in software and services are helping to drive innovation and transform the way we move people and goods.
