Poor visibility during the day and at night is one of the main causes of accidents on pedestrian crossings. This is a problem that affects Italy, but also the whole of Europe because, even now, far too large a proportion (30%) of accidents occur on zebra crossings.
By devising Safe Pedestrian 2.0, Safety21 has introduced a concrete response to the crisis, exploiting Cloud and IoT technology and an advanced lighting and filming system, which looks to the present and future of cities, using a smart approach. The system consists of:
4 high-brightness LED beacons triggered by 4 photocells when a pedestrian is on the pavement
2 presignals placed 70 metres before the crossing to alert motorists of the presence of a pedestrian, enabling them to slow down and stop in time.
A total of 6 signal light pulses that automatically work in advance when triggered by human presence, to increase the visibility of the pedestrian crossing, while a fisheye camera with 360° and quad view monitors the crossing in real time and allows for retrieval of recordings in the event of an accident. A truly Smart City will always give priority to protecting the health and safety of its citizens.
