As our cities continue to experience rapid urbanisation and population growth, there is greater pressure than ever before on our urban environments. However, by using 5G technology it is possible to create a safer and more sustainable city.
The Continuous Urban Scanner (CURBS) has been developed to help monitor the built environment and automatically highlight any issues on the road or kerbside.
By using 5G-enabled LiDAR scanners retrofitted to vehicles such as busses or trams, CURBS can provide real-time 3D mapping and monitoring data. It can also report accidents or near misses, improving road safety.
