iTouch Contactless Pedestrian Push Button Control

iTouch

Contactless Pedestrian Push Button Control

Safer Pedestrian Signalised Crossings

Introducing Aldridge iTouch the latest technology in Pedestrian Push Button Control.

With traditional push button controls, pedestrians physically push the button at traffic signal intersections to inform the traffic signals they are waiting to cross the road. With Aldridge iTouch no physical touch is necessary.

Pedestrians can now activate the control at the signalised intersection with just a wave of their hand.

KEY BENEFITS

Public Hygiene

Today more than ever before, improved hygiene measures are necessary. The risk of infection is greatly increased by human to surface contact. With the introduction of the new iTouch, the spread of infection is substantially reduced. iTouch is a hygienic alternative to standard pedestrian push buttons, which protects the public against potential contamination of their hands and virus spread.

Reduces Traffic Congestion

The iTouch ensures that traffic flow can continue to operate adaptively.  Unnecessary stopping cycles are decreased by stopping vehicles only when a pedestrian uses the iTouch. This reduces traffic congestion, driver frustration and improves pedestrian safety.

Contactless System

The iTouch features an Infrared Proximity Sensor so that pedestrians can request a crossing phase with just a wave of their hand in front of the illuminated sensor. iTouch retains all the functionality of the traditional push button, including the audio tactile features for the hearing or vision impaired.

Safer Crossing Behaviour

Allowing pedestrians access to control when crossing at traffic intersections, reduces waiting times, frustration and encourages safer pedestrian behaviour.

iTouch+ One-Tap Pedestrian Green Man Time Extender

iTouch+

DESCRIPTION

Seniors and those with a disability often require modification to the time limits allowed at pedestrian crossings and busy intersections, the conventional push button system may not give adequate time for safe crossing, especially for those who are less reactive and slower in crossing, which may give way to anxiety and panic.

The iTouch+, allows senior and disability cardholders to tap their concession card onto the sensor, mounted above the conventional push button controller. The tap region is clearly indicated and is easily accessible.

One-tap of the concession card extends the green-man time from anywhere between 3 – 13 seconds depending on the size and location of the crossing.

This system has been tried and tested for many years and has been a great benefit to elderly and disabled pedestrians users.

KEY BENEFITS

Safer Crossing

Allowing immobile pedestrians extended pedestrian crossing times at traffic intersections, reduces panic, frustration and fear of traffic, which can be an altogether unpleasant experience and may also prevent a person from going out in public for fear of accidents.

Public Hygiene

People with impairment, elderly or disabled, need to be protected by improved hygiene measures. The risk of infection is greatly increased by human to surface contact. With the introduction of the one-tap for the elderly and disabled, the spread of infection is substantially reduced. iTouch+ is a hygienic alternative to standard pedestrian push buttons, which protects the public from potentially contaminating their hands and can prevent virus spread.

Installation

iTouch+ is designed to fit snugly above an existing conventional push button control system or the new iTouch Contactless system.  The curve of the iTouch+ mirrors the shape of the conventional push button system.

Audio Tactile Pedestrian Detector

The system comprises two separate units; a post mounted weatherproof box, which accommodates the electronic control circuitry, power supply and ambient noise monitor microphone, plus an Aldridge Traffic Systems (ATS) audio tactile push-button assembly. The push-button assembly accommodates the tactile transducer fitted to the front escutcheon plate, which also houses the audio signal transmitter. Two models are available, the push-button assembly or an ATS CW series type assembly.

Audio Tactile Pedestrian Detector Push Button Assembly

Representing a major technology advance from ATS, the audio tactile detector and push-button assembly, is available with options of either audio only, tactile only or audio plus tactile indication. The audio tactile facilities can be partnered with either the ATS pedestrian push-button

assembly, where uniformity at existing installations or visual wait sign indication is desired. All pedestrians, including those with sight and/or hearing impairments, are catered for with the ATS pedestrian detection and indication system.
