What’s happened this month?
New York has chosen aBeacon for its new accessible pedestrian signal!
Tuesday, November 13th, 2018
We have been developing technological solutions to meet the mobility needs of people with disabilities for 25 years, so when the city of New York launched a call for innovations to make its pedestrian crossings safer for the blind and visually impaired, we completely redesigned our historic product to create aBeacon. Our new, connected accessible pedestrian signal will be installed in September 2019 at an intersection of the Big Apple. This is a first step towards the smart pedestrian crossings of tomorrow!
Our 3rd generation Accessible Pedestrian Signal aBeacon will be in demo at Smart City Expo World Congress Barcelona from 19 to 21 November 2019 Stand 403. Tell us if you will be present by completing the form.read more
