A LiDAR implementation and a collection of connected vehicle data are two of Las Vegas' most recent tech initiatives in its downtown Innovation District. In December 2017, the city implemented Light Detection and Ranging (LiDAR) sensors from Quanergy through a partnership with Cisco. “When you’re distracted, when you’re in love and you’re trying to get here, there’s tunnel vision. So that was one scenario for ‘Why LiDAR?'” Las Vegas Director of Information Technology Michael Sherwood said in an interview. He described the LiDAR rollout as the first of its kind.
