Look to the future?

Let’s think outside the box! In the age of technology, do we still need to rely on metal poles and flashing lights? Researchers at Carnegie Mellon University may have found a solution. They claim they can reduce the commute times of urban workers by 40% by replacing physical traffic lights with virtual traffic lights. Is this pie in the sky science or a real solution to combat loadshedding?

Virtual traffic lights

Could the hardware of yellow traffic poles, signal heads and LED modules soon be a thing of the past? Maybe one day in the future an image will pop onto your windscreens showing a green arrow instead.
