Touch-less 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.
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.
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.
