Alley Traffic Lights

We don’t often think of congested alleys but in Korea they’re some of the busiest intersections where over 40% of accidents occur. Like a traffic light, the AISA is a 3 or 4 way signal. It’s made of titanium alloy with a round shape  to disperse direct forces. Small camera based sensors detect whenever foot, bike, or motor traffic approach and warns cross traffic with flashing LEDS. The color indicates the degree of danger and the flashing rhythm denotes speed. It’s not meant to control the flow of traffic like a stop light but it does give you a sense of what’s coming ahead.

    “…look Joe at these cool lights I found in the middle of the street, there are some more along Main street, and they are freeeeee!Wooopeeee!”

  • Students would never again “liberate” another traffic cone if these hi-tech babies were on the public streets 😀

    Interesting Idea, but when you design for city alleys and streets, the aesthetics need to move away from “post-modern” and “designey” to more durable and urban/industrial design languages. And those shiny spherical pods which house the lights need to be more practical and tough looking, because they literally need to withstand getting run over by multi-ton trucks and cars.
