While scientists continue to work on the project. Its cost is $ 640,000. The finished traffic lights will have to save the lives of pedestrians and motorists and, moreover, remain intact and functional.
To do this, scientists will use shock-absorbing materials in the structure. Traffic lights will not bend on impact, but simply tilt at a slight angle. Traffic lights are now rigid steel hollow structures.
The authors of the development hope that the project will be ready for implementation by 2023.
Earlier in Russia, they came up with traffic lights that can be used as an interactive road sign.
