Zebra crossing was originally designed for pedestrian safety, but many drivers still often caused accidents when passing through the cross, especially in poor weather for bad sight. Designer Alexey Chugunnikov has designed a variety of pedestrian facilities. The smart zebra crossing he invented will produce white light when not in use.

As long as people or cars went through the cross marking, pressure on the marking board will be transformed into electric power, charging the battery, provide electricity to the color bulbs under metal plate.
