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.
