The road from the outskirts of New Delhi to the bustling capital, Delhi, is no walk in the park.
It’s an endless series of curves and turns, punctuated by sharp bends and wide-eyed pedestrians who keep their distance and are often startled to see vehicles coming up behind them.
In the past, such encounters were common, and even the people of Delhi were quick to condemn such behaviour.
But now, thanks to the development of smart technology, these are now more common occurrences.
Smartphones have been able to detect when someone is approaching from the wrong side of the road, and thus provide a clear signal to the driver.
The technology is currently in use on public transport in India and is now being used to provide the driver with a safety warning to stay out of the way.

It could mean that road deaths are now reduced, and road accidents are drastically reduced as well.
And for those people who do die on the road in the city, they may never have to see the driver again, as they could now just be able to view the road for themselves.
According to the Ministry of Road Transport and Highways, in 2017, 6,096 road deaths were recorded across the country.
Of those, 2,876 people died in road accidents and 1,921 died in traffic accidents.
Of the total deaths, 5,813 were in the capital of Delhi.
That is a decline of only 5.5% from the previous year.
The road death rate is one of the reasons behind the government’s move to set up the National Road Safety Commission.
The commission has been tasked with developing strategies to improve the safety of Indian roads and improve the quality of road life.
The commission has also been set up to promote safer and more efficient transport in the country, as well as improve road safety for road users.
