Passive Pedestrian Detection

Passive Pedestrian Detection is the detection of pedestrians in a stationary or moving state at a curbside or in a pedestrian crossing. This is sometimes used to call the pedestrian phase and can extend the clearance interval. Passive Detection includes audible signals as well as visual signals.

AutoButton by Migma

Migma AutoButton is a touchless and inexpensive push button. It can detect the presence of pedestrians walking into a curb cut, and automatically places the ped calls for them. This touchless innovation improves the pedestrian’s safety and increases traffic flow. Migma’s AutoButton also actuates ped signals on both sides of the crosswalk through wireless radio communication, which eliminates the need of pulling cables.
