Area X.O operated by Invest Ottawa, together with a host of industry partners, Transport Canada, and the City of Ottawa, are developing new practices, frameworks, and technology projects to help facilitate the safe adoption of smart mobility solutions, including low-speed automated shuttles (LSAS), CAVs, and smart infrastructure.
This panel will explore a new flagship collaborative project that includes comprehensive testing and validation at Area X.O’s private test facility and real-world deployments at the Area X.O public test track. These initiatives:
• Engage entrepreneurs, SMEs, multinationals, and government regulators, as well as vulnerable road users (VRUs) and mixed traffic
• Assess how these technologies perform, communicate, analyze, make decisions, take action, and maintain safety in dynamic urban environments
• Capitalize on one of the most advanced communication test infrastructures in the world established by Area X.O with numerous GPS systems, 4G/LTE, WiFi, LoRa, TV white Space and authentic pre-commercial 5G
• Leverage Area X.O’s V2X (vehicle-to-everything) testing, validation, and demonstration in a four-season climate with temperatures from -39 to +39 degrees Celsius (-38 to +102 degrees Fahrenheit)
