America’s first 5G-powered autonomous vehicle and smart city technology testbed

 The City of Peachtree Corners, Atlanta, in the US state of Georgia has opened the first intelligent mobility and smart city living laboratory which is powered by 5G.

The Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners will be used by companies to demonstrate and test the Internet of Things (IoT) applications and technologies

 The 500-acre technology park is powered by a 5G IoT communications network provided by Sprint.

The testbed will comprise:

  • The world’s first co-created, self-driving, electric shuttle, to transport guests
  • Autonomous drones delivering packages
  • Tele-operated e-scooter
  • Humanlike service robot with artificial intelligence in the cloud and the world’s first personal humanoid robot
  • Virtual personality on screens used across retail, hospitality and additional industries.
  • Autonomous vehicles and leading automotive technologies
  • Smart Delivery-Only Kitchen Solution
  • Autonomous commercial lawnmowers
  • Smart light poles with built-in connectivity for smart city infrastructure
  • Smart power solutions
  • Advanced Mobility Corridor:
  • Technology Incubator Inside an existing 500-Acre Technology Park:

Brian Johnson, city manager for Peachtree Corners, said: “Companies that are paving the way forward with next-generation IoT technologies have been missing one step in the development process: a living laboratory environment to test the technology that has graduated from a controlled laboratory environment.

“Curiosity Lab at Peachtree Corners provides a first-of-its-kind, real-world testing environment to prove out these technologies – creating realistic conditions that enable robotics, artificial intelligence solutions, autonomous services and countless more use cases to be optimized and ultimately scaled for the suburban and urban landscapes of tomorrow.”
