Cities around the world are looking to technology to help provide smarter, more efficient solutions to traffic-flow monitoring and transportation management. NVIDIA and Red Hat have collaborated on an innovative approach to these challenges that leverages edge IoT software and hardware with the hybrid cloud capabilities of Kubernetes.

The Metropolis application framework takes sensor data and processes it in real time to provide insights for traffic congestion, pedestrian flow, and infrastructure maintenance. Kubernetes provides the scalable cloud-native platform that hosts the analytics services of Metropolis which receives metadata in real-time from the video data captured at the edge, and delivers traffic flow insights to end users. Come join us for this profile of a cutting-edge smart city technology solution.
