SecurOS Soffit is Installed in Nalchik

An intelligent system for escorting pedestrians with dynamic illumination at unregulated crosswalks after dark has been launched in Kabardino-Balkaria.

The system is installed in Nalchik at the intersection of Shogentsukov Avenue and Lermontov Street. The site has high vehicular traffic and a heavy flow of pedestrians from the city park in the evening. Serious accidents involving pedestrians had already been recorded here, so it was important to take measures to improve the safety of road users. Regardless of the street lighting, the system additionally focuses drivers’ attention on pedestrians.

The project was initiated by the Ministry of Transport and Road Construction of Kabardino-Balkaria. In the future, SecurOS Soffit systems are going to be installed not only in the capital city but also in other cities of the republic. Scaling this technology to other accident-prone areas will help reduce the number of accidents with fatalities on the roads of the republic.
