Developing Pedestrian Detection Innovation

A PPP Quick-Share

Here is a potential high-tech solution to improving the safety of vulnerable road-users like pedestrians and cyclists. It can detect a user’s presence and even direction, through the capture of Bluetooth, WiFi, or cellular signal.  Then pass that info to motorists through mounted signs and eventually into the vehicle itself.

I met Jonathan and his father Arie some weeks ago.  They are very excited about getting this from research to roadway, and saving lives.  I think it would be great for areas that periodically have high-density pedestrians.  It would notify the motorist that they are entering a pedestrian-heavy area.
