Pick up at lamp post 35
On the countryside bus stops and taxi pick-ups are usually much more difficult to find and are used less often than in city centres. But via smart technologies, the lamp posts may become virtual bus stops. Via nearfield communication, i.e. Bluetooth, you can get information about busses / taxis arriving and require the bus to stop. The lighting on top of the pole could signalize the relevant driver in addition to his navigation system the pick-up request. Bus or taxi companies could organize their tours much more flexible on request. At the same time the lighting signal serves as a warning to other traffic participants about people, i.e. children, waiting close to the street.
