Telensa Joins Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program to Deliver Streetlight-based Smart City Applications Using Smartphone AI Technology

Telensa, the provider of connected street lighting and smart city data applications, announced that it has joined the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program. The program connects cities, municipalities, government agencies and enterprises with end-to-end smart city solutions based on Qualcomm’ technology. Qualcomm Technologies is creating a rich ecosystem of smart city solutions based on its technology to help accelerate the transformation of smart urban infrastructure and services for the 21st century.

Telensa’s latest device is the Multi-Sensor Pod (MSP), an array of streetlight-mounted units that measure how people use the city, the mix of traffic on the roads, hyper-local air quality and noise levels. Each MSP converts video and radar imaging into detailed real-time insights, using AI and machine learning techniques powered by the Qualcomm SDM845 processor. This edge processing eliminates the cost of moving raw data to the cloud.

Telensa already uses Qualcomm Technologies’ products in its Sensor Hub device – a streetlight-mounted unit that connects third-party sensors to lighting and cellular networks.

“Telensa is a global leader in smart street lighting, with more than 1.7 million lights connected globally. In addition to lighting controls, this also provides a platform for pioneering innovation based around these installed networks using Qualcomm Technologies’ technology,” said Sanjeet Pandit, Senior Director, Business Development and Head of Smart Cities, Qualcomm Technologies. “We welcome Telensa to the Qualcomm Smart Cities Accelerator Program and are excited about the potential for this strategic partnership to accelerate the move towards data driven cities.”
