Three students from the Information
Technology and English Departments at the University of Human Development have
worked on a project to reduce traffic accidents by using smart technology
connected to the blockchain.
The project attracted the attention
of Traffic Radio FM, a local radio operated by Sulaymaniyah Traffic
Directorate, so they were interviewed to explain it hoping that their voice
would reach the authority and actions would be taken.
their proposed solution, smart technology would be used to alarm drivers about
blind spots, hazards on the road, exceeding the speed limit, or parking in the
wrong place. The project can solve nearly 30 kinds of traffic problems.
accidents are the second leading cause of death in the world. Attempts to
reduce accidents and death have so far been limited. These students are hoping
that their proposal will offer something new and effective.
