Okeenea already produces its more conventional accessible pedestrian signal (APS). While it has been a successful product, according to the company, it is also noisier and so is not so convenient for visually impaired people.
Now, Okeenea has launched the aBeacon, what it says is the perfect mix of the APS and high-end technologies like iBeacon to provide new digital services to improve mobility of all citizens.
Key features of the easy-to-install aBeacon include less operational noise and also activation on-demand or automatic activation with remote control or smartphone app.
Safety for pedestrians is improved through a sound corridor and optional light flashing system to warn other users.
Importantly, the aBeacon is programmable to meet the laws and standards of all local authorities.
