RFID Traffic Signal Changer Pilot Program

In Aarhus, Denmark, as part of a pilot program to encourage biking, the city has engineered a popular intersection to be responsive to bikers. Riders can carry an RFID tag that triggers a sensor and turn the light green in their favor.

The tag clips to the spokes of the cyclist's front wheel, and when the rider passes the sensor, which is set back from the intersection, it triggers a response to flip the light in the bike lane to green, as long as there are not cars already moving through the intersection.  http://bit.ly/1lPnXJY
