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:

Much like its predecessor, the WiAAPS, 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, vibrotactile 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.

Touchless Technology

The Covid-19 Pandemic has been a wake-up call for health and safety concerns across the globe. PedSafety decided to make an impact with our products and develop touch-free options at the intersection to minimize the spread of germs & viruses and keep pedestrians safer.

Equipped with an infrared sensor for no-contact actuation, pedestrians request to cross by waving a hand in front of the wave icon near the physical push button.

With the physical push button still present and active, the WiAAPS Wave remains MUTCD compliant. No exclusivity or proprietary apps; the solution is available to all pedestrians.

Agency Benefits

The WiAAPS solution is designed with access and innovation in mind; any agency can identify specific parameters for residential, retail, and industrial areas and save them as configuration templates. The APC is software driven and offers flexibility in configuration options; any web browser device can be used to configure the system. Remote access is available to the APC when the cabinet is on a network. Our user-friendly software utility makes updates, data extraction and programming straightforward and effortless. Aesthetically pleasing extension brackets are available, allowing stations to be mounted at customized lengths within accessibility guidelines.


The APB Base Station is made from machined, solid aluminum stock. Sealed and ready, each system is configured at the factory for a true plug and play installation. WiAAPS can be easily retrofitted in existing intersections by utilizing the existing pedestrian input conductors.

The Wireless Data Transfer Advisor Advanced Pedestrian System (WiAAPS)

Fully MUTCD compliant, the WiAAPS communicates through a secured network and utilizes field wires for power. The simple set-up and web-based management capabilities make this solution a truly innovative part of any intersection.

The addition of the “Wave” active infrared sensor maintains MUTCD compliance and creates a secondary form of actuation separate from the Physical actuator.

For a complete intersection, WiAPBs and a WiAPC must be purchased. Please also note that these items are not backwards compatible with the old style AAPS system.
