La Semaforica launches three products at Intertraffic
Andrea Greggio of La Semaforica
La Semaforica is at Intertraffic with a trio of new products, from a traffic controller that can be operated from a smartphone, to a rugged and Smart pedestrian crossing activation device.
Cartesio is a traffic controller which incorporates the Linux open architecture operating system. It can be remotely controlled via tablet or smartphone and is suitable for use in extreme climatic conditions.
“We developed this for use in hostile environments where it is either extremely hot or very cold,” said export manager Riccardo Previato. “You can remain in your car and operate the traffic controller from your smartphone.”
The firm has also brought a new weather sensor station to market – Weather-SMacs. The multi-sensors station is virtually maintenance-free, says the company, as well as being easy to install.
Also new on the scene is La Semaforica’s Zebra touch sensitive device for pedestrian or cycle crossings. The device is an alternative to traditional mechanical buttons and has been designed to be weather and vandal-proof.
Blind users can activate a safe crossing by touching the bottom of the device. They will be guided by audio signals.
La Semaforica anticipates sales of 5,000 units in the first year, half in Italy and half overseas, according to sales director Andrea Greggio.
“We have great confidence in the product as it was developed at the specific request of Rome Municipality,” he said. “We see export markets in Europe and the Middle East."
