Pedestrian Traffic Lights
Automatic activation | 360 orientation |audible pedestrian signals-APS
When a user of Step-Hear app is close to a pedestrian traffic light with APS – the audible signal for red or green light automatically initiates. No need for the blind or visually impaired person to search for a physical button, and no need to press any button in the app.
This is also a solution to reduce noise disturbance in quiet neighborhoods that alternatively silence the audible signals in the evenings.
Audio description of the junction, the street names and crossing options. " What’s around me? " – audio description of points of interest around the user.
The audible signal on the other side of the crossing is also automaticly activated, so the sound indicates to the person with blindness how to walk straight on the crosswalk, instead of drifting dangerously into the dangerous junction.
