Lester Miyasaki of Wireless Technology with the pedestrian sensor
New pedestrian-sensing technology and an enhanced camera system are key exhibits on Wireless Technology’s booth.
The new J-5 Waiting Area and Crossing Pedestrian Sensor is said to provide a solution to the often competing demands at traffic intersections. According to Wireless Technology, Inc
, high-accuracy pedestrian detection increases pedestrian safety while also optimising traffic flow and fuel efficiency to reduce pollution. Initial trials are already running in the UK and China as well as the US and the system is said to be ideal for mid-block crosswalks. Crossing times can be adjusted to accommodate faster or slower pedestrians and the sensor is said to be unaffected by fog, rain or snow.
Also on display is the latest version of the high definition H264 Sidewinder camera. While retaining the 360° continuous rotation of the pan and tilt axes, the camera now sports a 30X optical zoom, electronic image stabilisation and a de-fogging feature. Maintenance and cold weather issues are now countered by the hydrophilic self-cleaning glass and electrically-conductive indium tin oxide coating.
