Automatic activation consists of “gateways” comprised of a pair of bollards. Each bollard contains built-in sensor module. These modules project and receive infrared light beams to the opposing bollard module.
A pair of bollard devices are placed opposing each other at either end of the crosswalk zone entrances. Typically, there are a total of 4 bollards per crosswalk.
As pedestrians enter into a crosswalk zone they pass between the bollards and automatically activate the Smart Crosswalk™ system.
The bollard “gate” system is directionally sensitive. It is only activated when entering the crosswalk zone and not when exiting.
These bollard are capable of accommodating up to a 60’ wide crosswalk entrance zone. The bollard “system” was developed and “pioneered” by LightGuard.
This activation method has the highest degree of reliability of any known automatic activation/detection for IRWL enhanced crosswalk systems. Our success has generated "imitation" products.
Each bollard contains an internal courtesy light making it visible at night. The bollards design is to “invite” pedestrians to enter a crosswalk at a desired location.
