A Study on the Development of Passage Safety Systems in the School Zones based on Context Awareness

In this study, the authors proposed the passage safety systems equipped with the cutting-edge information technology (IT) devices and intelligent transportation systems (ITS) technology, based on context awareness in the school zones. These systems were more advanced than the existing traffic safety systems that have shown limited features; Speed cameras and DFS (Driver Feedback System), etc. The authors also analyzed the passage behaviors of children on crosswalks based on actual data and tried to reflect their analysis results to the passage safety systems that they proposed to be developed. The result of the study showed that these systems to be developed need to mount features that can safely guide and physically control children to make them pass crosswalks after waiting. Furthermore, these systems need to mount the features of sound or video messages that make children to be careful for vehicles before they pass crosswalks. Finally, these systems need to recognize this behavior of children and to provide approaching vehicles with different safety/caution messages depending on their distance/speed.
