Lennar Urban, which recently obtained approval to develop last piece of undeveloped land in San Francisco, a 750- acre mixed-use project on the southeast waterfront on the site of a former military shipyard and Candlestick Park, is teaming with Bosch to incorporate smart transportation information technology throughout the community.
The Smart Community application for The Shipyard Communities, will provide residents of the San Francisco Shipyard and Candlestick Point with highly-localized information about transportation, home appliance maintenance and surveillance. For example, plans are in the works for household alert systems tied to a “walk me home” feature, which will allow residents to share their route home with friends and family, using the app’s GPS functionalities.
In addition, Bosch and Lennar Urban are exploring incorporating Bosch sensor systems into a new parking garage structure being developed at Candlestick Point. The sensors would minimize the time spent searching for parking spots, which will help reduce emissions and traffic congestion.
“The Smart Community app, built by our Bosch Software Innovations team, enables cities to engage citizens with content that matches their interests,” said Mike Mansuetti, president of Robert Bosch LLC. “The application for The Shipyards community was a collaboration from the beginning between Lennar Urban and Bosch, showcasing how Bosch works with communities to bring smart technologies to life in unique and exciting ways.”
