Increasing Motorists’ Awareness of Pedestrians Goal of High-tech Program

What could be a high-tech solution to pedestrian safety launched on Las Vegas streets this month. The GENIVI Alliance and the Nevada Center for Advanced Mobility launched a 12-month in-vehicle communication pilot project last week that aims to improve vehicle-to-pedestrian awareness on high-traffic and multimodal corridors. A city of Las Vegas fleet vehicle was the first to be fitted with an on-board-unit (OBU), a tablet-like device, which relays real-time information regarding pedestrian and traffic safety.
