It couldn’t recognize individuals even if it was fully connected

This isn’t just a research project. The company Günther Pincher is rolling out the first such lights in the Vienna area, and intends to replace the button system in “selected locations” by the end of 2020. It could be a long time before they reach your part of the world, but there could come a day when you simply have to approach the curb to make the lights turn in your favor.
