INCREASED SAFETY FOR PEDESTRIANS

Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk

The Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk (SPC) is a multifunctional C-ITS device, which improves traffic safety on unregulated pedestrian crosswalks. The design of the device is intended to comply with all requirements concerning the roadside C-ITS applications. The main task of the SPC is to improve the awareness of road users located nearby and to notify road users of the probable traffic hazard. The system is adaptive so it reacts accordingly to the situation.

Fixing the problem

Approximately 1.35 million people die each year as a result of road traffic crashes. More than half of all road traffic deaths occur among vulnerable road users (VRU): pedestrians, cyclists, and motorcyclists. Road traffic crashes cost most countries 3% of their gross domestic product. Wrong decisions made by road users, attributed to the lack of information about the traffic environment, can be considered to be the primary cause of traffic accidents. SPC is a innovative product to midigate these risks.

Bercman Management Console

Bercman has developed a cloud based portal which is web-based user interface that allows You to access and manage data from Your Bercman's traffic management products. The clients can also remotely monitor the technical conditions of Bercman devices. It is also possible to receive alerts on potential failures via the platform. In addition all of the statistical data will be graphically presented. All of the data can be downloaded as well. BMC can be easily integrated with already existing systems as it is container based API. Bercman plans to add more tools to the BMC, which will allow customers to easily analyze data and make important conclusions and practical traffic management decisions.

How does it work?

SPC monitors and detects all road users with cameras and sensors and has several safety and notification functions implemented. To detect the situations involving traffic hazards, narrow artificial intelligence algorithms are used, which are capable of predicting the moving trajectories of the road users and warn them in advance. The system warns pedestrians with audio signal and vehicle drivers with blinking LED lights. SPC also enables communication between infrastructure and vehicles.

Sending safety messages to your car

The Smart Pedestrian Crosswalk is designed that way it can communicate with connected vehicles. V2X devices (ITS G5, 5G) can be installed to start transmitting safety messages about the presence of the Vulnerable Road Users to connected vehicles. This feature is like an extra set of eyes to you and your vehicle.
