Under-foot traffic lights

Cities are social spaces that carry a lot of important information. A big city is an intersection of numerous flows of information. The way the city is structured, its communication component is an important characteristic of a comfortable living inside these information flows and an urban space as a whole.

The first thing the communication component of cities is responsible for is security. Despite all its advantages, an urban environment is still a place one needs to be more attentive.

The pace of life is set by our mobility: most residents of the big city do not part with the phone even for a second - they answer calls, conduct business correspondence, or simply chat with friends. Think about how often do you have to start moving on the pedestrian crossing with your eyes lowered to the phone, or how often do you, as a driver, encounter such pedestrians? Despite the fact that everyone understands that a road is a place of increased danger, citizens need new ways of communicating the information about road traffic taking into account the realities of the time. Staring at the phone screen a person mostly sees a small part of the road as well.

The task of urban planning is to adapt to the modern life, therefore AIRA is promoting the project called Under-foot traffic lights, installing traffic lights in the place where people most often look when crossing the roadway.

How does it work?

Today AIRA is implementing additional security measures in the field of traffic. Under-foot traffic lights is a luminous stone-block pavement which is located at the beginning of the pedestrian crossing. It works in sync with the main traffic light and changes the signal, warning you when you can cross the roadway. The traffic light can be made in several variants. The first is a light series with a red or green glow. The second is a light series with the inscriptions STOP and GO. The interactive component is one of the main trends of urban improvement projects. Our smart traffic light follows this trend.

Smart traffic lights attract the attention of children to the process of crossing the roadway. Moreover, it is an additional warning factor affecting the psychological perception of the road by pedestrians. Also, such a traffic light is extremely convenient for visually impaired people.

Light lines are manufactured using the patented SELIN technology. Our company is working to create high-quality materials that are resistant to changing weather conditions and other external disturbances. The use of shock-proof LED elements made of solid SELIN material ensures continuous operation of the object. A bright glow will make its way through the dense snow, which is especially important in the conditions of the Russian winter.

AIRA has already implemented this project in several cities including Moscow, Almetyevsk, and Grozny; and everywhere it received a positive response from both residents and local authorities, who noted the decrease in the number of dangerous road situations thanks to innovative technologies. In 2015, the first Under-foot traffic light was installed in Moscow. According to the statistics of the State Traffic Safety Inspectorate, there have been no fatal accidents on this site for two years. In 2018, the Moscow government plans to continue installing smart traffic lights at dangerous intersections.
