I would like to come up with a form of ICT to make the streets safer for pedestrians. What kinds of technology do you think can be used to make the streets safer? What are your personal concerns regarding safety when walking around the city?

Possible Ideas:
-A smart phone application which will make use of audio and vibration alerts to inform the pedestrian of intersections that may be dangerous.
-The app may analyze traffic data to determine if the current street is a high risk area due to the amount of traffic.
-The app may draw user generated content to users can vote on the safest and most dangerous areas. This information would be used to update the audio alter algorithm.
