The Video Analytics Towards Vision Zero project is a collaboration between the City of Bellevue and Brisk Synergies.

The project uses Bellevue’s existing traffic cameras at key intersections to identify the rate and severity of near-miss collisions between people driving, walking and bicycling. This insight could help the city proactively identify intersections warranting safety improvements -- consistent with the city’s Vision Zero effort.

This strategic partnership with Brisk Synergies – formalized in 2019 – is a continuation of work that commenced with Microsoft. Information on the previous partnership is available in an ITE Journal article , in an overview video (April 2017), and in a video about potential applications (August 2018).
