When the downlight is red

Matej Krizaj, SWARCO regional manager for South East Europe, reports the first installation of the novel COMBIA SAFELIGHT traffic signal in Croatia.

Distracted smartphone users are omnipresent nowadays, often paying little attention to traffic regulations.
In order to prevent them from crossing the street at a red traffic light, SWARCO has developed an LED traffic light that shines the red stop light also downward onto the pavement. This gives an optical impulse to the downward looking smartphone users, warning them of a red traffic light. This helps avoid injuries or even fatal accidents.

A special thank you goes to our Croatian partner company ELEKTROMODUL PROMET d.o.o. for the professional pilot installation in the city of Zagreb.
