ODOT needs a way to process a messy set of input data - a long list of scanned PDFs that determine different vehicle classes for purposes of the California ZEV program - into a spreadsheet or database format to classify vehicles after decoding them based on VINs
Autonomous Commute Corridor
Explore with a community group the idea of operating autonomous transit between downtown LO and downtown Portland along the LO-Portland Trolley line while allowing for multi modal use for pedestrians and bicycles.
Many people in our region don’t have the access to technology and internet, bank account, language skills, documentation, physical ability, or knowledge to access new mobility services like ridehailing, ridesharing, and bikesharing. We're looking to partner with a firm to help solve one or more of these barriers.
Last Mile Connectivity
The City of Tualatin faces an integrated problem that focuses on maintain and enhancing workforce mobility and the alleviation of the arterial congestion on I-5. This last mile issue focuses on the primary connection of the WES Station, servicing Wilsonville to Beaverton, and the accessibility to the primary industrial and commercial employment areas of Tualatin and the proposed SW Corridor project (access to downtown Portland) in Bridgeport Village.
Linking Trips and Multi Modal Commutes
Commute times are unreliable and congestion is increasing in the urban area. Alternatives to sitting in traffic exist today. These potential options may include changing mode, changing commute hours or delaying the trip, telecommuting, traveling to remote and/or shared workspace, or just enduring the congestion, along with many others. Commuters, employers, and other businesses would generally benefit from having an integrated suite of options to help make choices both before and during their trip. Choices could be more easily driven by comparing similar characteristics between the array of options that would best suit the individual’s needs.
Real Time Mobile Communications + Navigation
How can we ensure the traveling public has real-time information about when and where construction work is happening our County roads? Multnomah County is challenging our Tech partners to assist us in informing our citizens in real time of traffic closures by utilizing our existing permitting system, GIS, and making this information available through the most frequently used navigation apps.
See the Data
Testing three types of air quality sensor devices to be deployed along an arterial roadway. BPS would like help creating flexible data visualization tools to help us more easily perform analysis of sensor air quality/climate data integrated with transportation data. Current analysis and data visualization is performed using R statistical language but a flexible data visualization tool would allow a variety of users to access data analysis
Block Chain + Mobility
DTNA is exploring the use of blockchain technology to increase efficiency & transparency in our supply chain & finance operations. We are looking for Oregon companies that could help us develop, deploy, and maintain blockchain systems.
DTNA is seeking proposals to improve its core management process, which currently involves multiple parties that require payment upon delivery & acceptance of physical parts/cores. This process currently has high coordination & documentation efforts for transactions and a lack of visibility to the physical cores.
Big Data Streetside
Let’s grab big data. Our streets are full of data every single day that we can’t use right now because its collected by 3rd parties. How can we access, anonymize, format, and harness data from Strava, MapMyRun, Moves, Google Maps, ReachNow, Car2Go, Lyft, Uber, TriMet, etc. that are all existing and in some cases available. Should be looking for a recurring update that also processes the data collected. Let’s own our own data. How can we accomplish this task to make the data relevant and useful for our pruposes?
ReachNow gives commuters the confidence to shift their commute mode to transit, bike or carpool by offering first/last mile access and access to transportation throughout the workday for meetings, lunch, errands or emergencies. In particular, commuters from Southwest Washington, as mentioned in the WSDOT challenge, may take advantage of this option to shift mode yet still have transportation during the work day.
Urban.Systems is bringing together a team to solve the last mile problem for transit and freight with on demand fleet managed urban speed electric vehicles. We are currently using autonemous technologies to address road safety issues and have plans to move to fully autonemous as soon as the technology is ready and policy allows.
We help cities, municipalities, transit agencies and State DOTs identify the best Smart Cities technologies that meet their individual needs, and then help them implement them.
Mapillary -- New challenges in urban mobility requires fresh, accurate maps. In cities of constant change, up-to-date map data is hard to obtain and even harder to maintain. Traditional methods of data collection require fieldwork that is expensive and time consuming.
Mapillary is a collaborative street-level imagery platform for generating map data using computer vision. By applying deep learning for automated feature extraction and creating 3D reconstructions of the locations from the images, our platform is an engine for generating map data on the fly from imagery taken with any device or sensor. Cities and citizens can easily create their own street-level imagery using off-the-shelf cameras, and use machine generated data for road surveys, asset inventory, infrastructure projects and more.
The goal of every jurisdictions Mobility Platform is to create a secure environment for local applications and data; configured to provide deep visibility into application traffic and load tested to ensure everything works when needed. Critical factors to consider in this solution include department control and capabilities, ease of adoption, and the security and availability of local systems. Together, a packaged solution will prevent disruption of a city’s communication chain via brute force or insider attack, pin point performance degradation or application failure to assist with remediation, and provide full testing capability to ensure performance under load. Solutions need to be configured to function with an array of city systems to speed integration, reduce cost, and ensure compliance running on premise, in the cloud, or in a hybrid mode.

SideCard technology by Tyfone can control vehicles with authentication that does not rely on any centralized credentials. SideCard also makes blockchain private keys uncloable making it impossible for such keys to be stolen as well as making immutability records of distributed ledger to be not falsified.
The SideCard solution means vehicles are not prone to remote compromises of credentials in bulk, nor does it require the vehicle to have network coverage, making it usable anywhere. Further, SideCard enables frictionless push button cryptographic onboarding of mobile app identity. This means that users don’t have to answer questions with personally identifiable information which have been compromised by organizations like Equifax. SideCard has the ability to store additional credentials allowing for onboard of commerce and content credentials with a push of a button. API for SideCard and mobile apps will soon be made available for other developers.
Working with ecosystem partners to provide scalable, open architecture solutions that leverage technology from sensors to cloud and enable municipalities to engage with citizens in new ways while improving city living.
