Fully compliant with MUTCD and agency specifications, the Wireless Advanced Accessible Pedestrian System (WiAAPS) communicates through a secured network and utilizes field wires for power. Now with “Wave” capability, pedestrians can utilize the no contact active infrared sensor to place a call at the intersection. The “Wave” active infrared sensor operates independently from the physical push button and provides a germ-free means of actuation. The simple set-up and web-based management capabilities make this solution a truly innovative part of any intersection.
Secured Network Solution
The Advanced Pedestrian Coordinator (APC) is in continuous communication with each Advanced Pedestrian Button (APB) in a network based, distributed control system. Direct Ethernet access or remote network connection allows real-time system monitoring and control of operating parameters, while also providing the capability to upload files directly to individual pedestrian stations or download reports generated by the APC. This innovative solution still offers an ambient gain compensation locator tone, extended press options, vibro-tactile walk indications, and optional clearance phase indications. The “Wave” sensor also allows pedestrians to place an extended press call. Sensor settings, such as distance detection and sensitivity of the sensor, can be adjusted to meet the needs of the intersection.
