Parul Dubey on February 19, 2018 - in Technology, Transportation, Video

The Federal Highway Administration has led the development of a smartphone based application to increase driver awareness of pedestrians at mid-block crosswalks. A driver using the application within their vehicle will receive an audible and visual alert when a pedestrian using the application has indicated an intent to use a mid-block crosswalk. The application runs on smartphones or tablets and is active when the vehicle and pedestrian are within the designated geofenced areas.
