Module E1 - Slide 5


At installations where the APS are not on two poles separated by 10 feet, a speech WALK indication is needed so the pedestrian can distinguish which APS is giving the signal. When a speech walk message is installed, other features are needed to clarify which street is being signaled: a pushbutton information message and a tactile arrow aligned with the direction of travel on the crosswalk. A pushbutton information message informs the pedestrian of the name of the street to be crossed. In order to accurately respond to the speech walk indication, the pedestrian needs to know the name of the street they are preparing to cross and people often do not provide every street name when giving directions.
