Unfortunately, the number of accidents at railway crossings is constantly increasing. Drivers who ignore warning devices or are not careful enough at unprotected intersections are often to blame.

But Škoda Auto has developed an application that warns drivers of an approaching train - and should thus increase safety at crossings. In most current Škoda models, you can download the Traffication app directly to the infotainment system. The software evaluates potential dangers using trains' location data, among other things. During this trial period, Škoda collaborates with the train company Leo Express. How accurate is the app? And what other warnings can it provide? Today’s guest on the Simply Clever podcast is Michal Vondra from the EEH department at Škoda Auto.
