Crosswalk is a way to sharing the road between vehicle and people. As the population increases, the chance of accident rises. Due to efforts on decreasing accidents, the total number of accident decreases annually. Nevertheless, the number of pedestrian accident in crosswalks is not decreased for a decade. In this paper, we propose a Pedestrian-Safe Smart Crosswalk System based on IoT using a CCTV with object tracking to reduce and save lives from an accident.
