The system created extract and “digitalize” the traffic light signals making them available and “readable” by smartphone in the proximity of a crosswalk. This system, thanks to multiple checks made by the hardware and by the software (Laura App) installed in the user smartphone, has the certainty to send always the correct information without the chance of mistake in the sent information.
“Laura” system, with an investment much smaller than the current systems available on the market, that provide only an acoustic signal linked with the shown traffic light status, allows the users to a huge amount of possible useful services.
The same hardware, installed on the vehicular traffic lights or in the central controller, makes available on a server the timing of the traffic light allowing the usage of these data to enhance the calculations behind the navigation system proposed paths. This may bring a huge saving in terms of time and fuel and, consequently, a reduced impact on the environment.
In the near future, the developed system could be deployed in all the new generation laterns opening uncountable communication possibilities between road infrastructures and users, being them vehicles or pedestrians.
The deployment of the “Car2Play” system that project the app installed on the smartphone on the entertainment systems embedded on the vehicles finally allows in a safe and fast way the knots of the road systems.
