We’ve no idea why the ‘Intersection Signalétique’ was primarily designed, acting as traffic lights, road decoration or billboards? But who would really care? I mean, the concept behind the project is quite fantastic! The system, as an experimental prototype, has already been installed on the intersection between two major streets in Montreal. Several projectors were placed on towers to project lights onto the roads, reminding the pedestrians to cross or stop in time. Though its functionality still remains to be proved, the system sounds especially practical to those passers who prefer to walk with their heads bent down. To help you pass the time easily while waiting for the green lights, some advertisements will also be shown on the street.
