AT&T Announces Winners Of The $50,000 ‘Connected Intersections’ Traffic Safety Innovation Challenge

An app that alerts pedestrians as they are about to enter an intersection and one that alerts drivers when they are showing signs of drowsiness are the grand prize winners in AT&T’s Connected Intersections Challenge, a tech challenge aimed at spurring technological solutions to improve traffic safety on New York City streets. For the past four months, developers from around the world worked on technologies that utilize wireless networks to better connect pedestrians, cyclists and motorists and alert them to potential dangers.
