Module E1 - Slide 3


The correct location of the APS pushbuttons and speakers is one of the most critical factors in the success of the APS operation, but commonly the biggest problem. The new types of APS depend on careful location to provide the information about the walk indication. When designing installations, other features of the corner design may affect the APS location and features. Corner features that may need to be considered include the curb radius, the width of right-of-way, the curb ramp design and location, and existing infrastructure.

In new construction, you can and should control all of those features to implement the best possible design. In retrofit or alterations situations, there are often issues to be considered and worked with.
