oh deer, elk x-ing

the first ever electric WILDLIFE CROSSWALK has been activated in Arizona.
The crosswalk system uses thermal infrared cameras that send images to sophisticated software normally used by the military to find targets. The software determines if the object is large enough—such as an elk or deer—to be a risk to motorists. The software sends signals to electronic warning signs placed in advance of the crosswalk in either direction, and to flashing warning signs at the crosswalk.
