?3D pedestrians? expected to improve road safety outside MoscowLaser-generated 3D holograms of pedestrians may be installed by crosswalks in Moscow and its region to enhance traffic safety.

Laser-generated 3D holograms of pedestrians may be installed by crosswalks in Moscow and its region to enhance traffic safety, M24.ru reported earlier this week, citing Mekhti Gadzhiev from the Moscow region?s road authorities. According to Natalia Kirpa, one of the project initiators and the head of an innovation lab at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology (MIPT), the laser projector would be mounted above traffic lights. Under plans, each crosswalk will be equipped with movement sensors, and a ?3D pedestrian? will only appear when a real pedestrian approaches the road. It is expected that a driver will be able to see a red hologram from the same distance as he normally sees conventional road signs, and the hologram will be much brighter in the dusk and at night...
