The first AI crosswalk in Korea is emerging.

It's a futuristic pedestrian crossing that doesn't have the traffic lights we knew and doesn't have to wait long.

First, AI detects pedestrians approaching the crosswalk and analyzes traffic conditions around the crosswalk.

And when the driver sees a distance to stop and see the pedestrians, it lights up along the edge of the pedestrian crossing line drawn on the floor of the road.

You can just cross it at this point.
Lights can also be lit on separate signs installed around them to inform drivers that pedestrians are crossing the crosswalk.

As the lights are turned on from time to time without traffic light cycles and traffic conditions, pedestrians are expected to rarely wait to cross the road and greatly reduce the risk of accidents of no-signal pedestrian crossings that require pedestrians to see if they are coming.

The netizens say, "Oh ~ I can't tell you I'm a person!" "Smart pedestrian crossing! Please make it in the metropolitan area ~" and responded.
