The intelligent zebra crossing is an upgrade to the solar road stud application. The solar LED road studs are laid on both sides of the zebra crossing and controlled by smart sensors and bluetooth system to keep in line with the traffic light changes. The Smart Zebra Crossing applies solar road studs, which is an energy-saving, environmental protection, safe and effective road safety device.
According to the introduction, in order to improve the crossing traffic order at Zhongshan South Road intersection, realize the fast and slow traffic separation, safety and orderly, reduce the congestion caused by the human-vehicle conflict, Nanjing city transportation bureau organization city road engineering research center implemented the Zhongshan South Road intersection non-motorized vehicle exclusive use channel promotion project, "intelligent zebra crossing" for the important pilot content of the project.
According to statistics, there are about 3,000 motor vehicles, 1,500 pedestrians and 300 non-motorized vehicles passing through the intersection in one hour during the busy period. The putting into use of "intelligent zebra crossing" with solar led road studs can protect the safety of pedestrians and warn the passing vehicles, and improve the congestion by regulating the crossing behavior of pedestrians and vehicles and separating people and vehicles.
