The app can warn users of collision risks between pedestrians and vehicles, as well as possible car-to-car crashes, to prevent road accidents.

The app can analyze data of the user’s location, moving direction, and speed on the cloud system in real-time. It alerts users with sound, vibration, and warning messages when there is a collision risk.

LG said its pedestrian safety solution is compatible with the country’s Cooperative-Intelligent Transportation System (C-ITS) to receive information on road traffic and driving conditions, reports Yonhap news agency.

The app also utilizes smart CCTVs to warn of possible collisions with people or vehicles that do not have Soft V2X installed.

LG said the app will be useful in preventing accidents coming from vehicle blind spots and during severe weather conditions.

LG said it will expand partnerships with other companies and conduct various demonstration projects before commercializing the Soft V2X.

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people

When a baby is born in an Indian household-they invite hijra to shower the newborn with their blessings for their blessings confer fertility, prosperity, and long life on the child. But when that child grows up we teach them to avert their eyes when a group of hijras passes by, we pass on the behaviour of treating hijras as lesser humans to our children. Whenever a child raises a question related to gender identity or sexuality they are shushed down. We're taught to believe that anything "deviant" and outside of traditional cis-heteronormativity is something to be ashamed of. This mentality raises anxious, scared queer adults who're ashamed of their own identity, and adults who bully people for "queer behaviour".

Hijras are a community of people who include eunuchs, intersex, and transgender people. They worship the Hindu goddess of chastity and fertility, Bahuchara Mata. Most hijras, but not all, choose to undergo a castration ceremony known as "nirvana" in which they remove their male genitalia as an offering to their goddess.
