Launched in April this year, Crosswalk is an app that gives pedestrians with restricted mobility more time to cross the road. Currently the system is being trialled with 10 subjects in the Dutch city of Tilburg. The adapted traffic lights house a sensor that scans the pavements on both sides of the road. If it locates someone using the Crosswalk app then it automatically adjusts the time that the lights remain green. The app has four varied time settings, and the light’s sensor will pick the one suitable for the pedestrian’s level of mobility to ensure that they have more than enough time to cross the road, but also that it doesn’t overly delay the traffic.
