The US Department of Transportation’s Federal Highway Administration (USDOTFHWA) has developed a vehicle-to-pedestrian (V2P) app that can help to increase drivers’ awareness of pedestrians at mid-block road crossings. Pedestrians using the app can notify drivers of their intent to use the crossing. The app then audibly notifies drivers, who have the app installed in their vehicle, of the pedestrian’s presence as they approach the crossing.
