  • About us
     
    Vivacity Labs is a start-up that is growing exponentially in one of the fastest growing sectors,  with a talented team and the very brightest of futures.
     
    At Vivacity, we make cities smarter. We gather real-time data from our sensors to reduce congestion, spot dangerous manoeuvres on the road to improve safety, and support autonomous vehicles.
     
    Using Reinforcement Learning techniques at the forefront of academic and research thinking, our award winning teams optimise traffic lights to prioritise cyclists and improve air quality. To support this, we gather anonymised data through simple, efficient, and affordable Computer Vision based sensors.
     
    Our work makes a real difference to real people. All our solutions are community-centric, using 'privacy by design' principles. Our ultimate goal is to make the European vision of a Smart City - one which makes the city work effectively, for the community.
     
    We are innovators in our field and have a strong, open and friendly culture that supports those looking for opportunity, challenge and autonomy.
