Develop a crosswalk that will ensure the safe crossing of pedestrians, the equipment will have a set of functions and technological innovations. The system will have a set of innovative features, such as:

  1. Energetically autonomous and completely disconnected from the electric power supply network;
  2. The commissioning stage will be carried out transparently, following the plug-and-play philosophy;
  3. Creation of a set of innovative functions, namely: a) creation of a luminous tunnel for the safe passage of pedestrians (created by installing two poles in opposite positions to the direction of crossing); b) creation of an alert system, when there are people at the crossing, for drivers, allowing an increase in their perception;
  4. Maintenance and resiliency of the system will be innovative in the development and use of self maintenance techniques;
  5. Remote management system.
  6. Self-maintenance models.
  7. Auto-organization algorithm for auto-commissioning.
  8. Efficient energy management in adverse climatic environments.
  9. Final management solution for crossing support.
  10. Improving crossing conditions and crosswalk visibility.
  11. Increased visibility by drivers.
  12. Remote and auto-maintenance.
