Approximately, 1.35 million people die every year due to road accidents (World Health Organization). More than half of these road accidents are the accidents caused by road crossing. The fastest growing traffic in cities of every country of the world are a risk of accident and make it difficult to cross the road easily (data feeds from Terbine’s system). In this machinery world, robots are being used as traffic police and traffic warden. This development is still ignoring the safety of pedestrians who face many difficulties while crossing the road.
To solve these difficulties, I am developing a robotic system (Robo Road Crossing Assistant) to make the road crossing easier and safer. Robo (Road Crossing) assistant will be developed for the following objectives:
Following fields/markets will get benefits by the usage of this robotics system:
The saved data on the cloud could be analyzed by police and FIA.
