Beacons Are Helping Pregnant Women Get A Seat On Korean Trains
A portable sensor prods riders to do the right thing and give up their seats
It is always difficult to figure out if a seat should be forfeited to someone else on a train. Trains and subways everywhere are packed with people and it is easy to miss opportunities to assist the physically handicapped or elderly. Busan, a major city in South Korea, is attempting to create a solution to this problem by implementing a bluetooth system in its subways. The system informs passengers if a pregnant woman is on the train through a bright pink light attached to the poles.
