December 2021.04.15, XNUMX / MOLIT

  Smart crosswalks are being changed to make it safer and more convenient for both pedestrians and drivers by introducing IT technology to general crosswalks!
 Smart pedestrian crossing is a traffic safety service to protect pedestrians' safety from vehicle accidents and unexpected situations that may occur using a smartphone while walking. A motion sensor detects the speed of a passing vehicle in a child protection zone with a speed limit of 30 km/h, and the speed is warned and marked to the drivers with colors and expressions.
It also operates a warning voice service for pedestrians to notify vehicles approaching near the crosswalk. With the introduction of traffic lights on the floor, you can safely walk the crosswalk even if you walk while looking at your smartphone. In addition, as a traffic facility installed at an intersection without a traffic light, when entering and entering a vehicle, pedestrians are informed that the vehicle is approaching with a visual message using an LED sign and a warning sound, and the driver is signaled to be careful because there are people with a floor warning light. Giving system 'Smart intersection reminder service is also in be. The risk of accidents was reduced by installing LED lights next to the floor line of the pedestrian crossing so that it can be seen well in the dark at night.
