Video: RTA installs smart traffic signal in Dubai
Pedestrian movement on the pavement is spotted by the smart system, which then modifies the timing of the signal's light change accordingly

A 'smart' traffic signal to improve pedestrian flow has been installed in Dubai by the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA)

The traffic signal uses a sensor-based smart platform through an optical ground system. 

Pedestrian movement on the pavement is spotted by the smart system, which then modifies the timing of the signal's light change accordingly. 

Watch a video of the signal in action at Dubai's Al Saada Street.
