The Georgia city will enable Bosch to prove out its latest, most advanced edge computing capabilities to manage and analyse traffic via Curiosity Lab’s connected intersection.
The Georgia city of Peachtree Corners, home to the Curiosity Lab smart city testbed, is collaborating with Bosch Building Technologies to demonstrate and develop the future of video-as-a-sensor technology.
The city will enable Bosch to prove out its latest, most advanced edge computing capabilities to manage and analyse traffic via Curiosity Lab’s connected intersection.
It follows Peachtree Corners announcment that it is implementing IPgallery’s integrated, artificial intelligence-based smart city management system.
Bosch claims its technology will be able to generate new insights into traffic planning for the “city street of the future”. With teleoperated e-scooters and fully autonomous vehicles intermingling with regular traffic, drivers and citizens living their everyday lives in Peachtree Corners, it is hoped that the collaboration will unveil a host of data points that will help other cities across the globe better prepare for tomorrow.
“Our 5G-enabled living laboratory will give Bosch the opportunity to push the limits of their technology in a real-world setting that is almost impossible to replicate in a closed lab, while enhancing overall city operations and the lives of our residents,” said Brian Johnson, city manager of Peachtree Corners.
“The city of Peachtree Corners also provides Bosch a real-world showcase for their customers to come and experience their technology applied to an actual city, not just in concept.”

Brandon Branham, chief technology officer and assistant city manager of Peachtree Corners, reckoned the addition of advanced video-as-a-sensor technology, along with Cradlepoint’s cellular router for testing failover connectivity, is another reflection of Peachtree Corners’ commitment to showcasing how government entities and the world’s top technology companies can and should work together to make the smart city vision a reality in the US.
Branham added: “It’s an honour to be working alongside Bosch to create another layer of smart infrastructure for Peachtree Corners – and we look forward to analysing invaluable, actionable data in our central control centre to make important decisions as we continue to improve our city into the future.”
