Novelty! Safe pedestrian crossing lighting system


10.06.2021

Statistics on road accidents show that pedestrian crossings, although intended for safe crossing of the road, are not safe places at all. In 2020 in Poland, 2,678 accidents involving pedestrians occurred at marked crossings, which accounts for as much as 51% of all accidents involving pedestrians, mainly due to poor lighting or lack of it.

One of the key factors improving safety at pedestrian crossings is properly designed crossing lighting. For economic reasons, this lighting does not have to be lit all night long - it should fulfill its role only when there are pedestrians at the crossing. When designing the lighting system for pedestrian crossings, we carefully analyzed various situations on the road to create a product that will ensure the maximum safety of road users - says Artur Szewczuk, R&D Specialist from the ROSA Group Design Department - LED luminaires and anodized aluminum poles of different heights, our system can be used on crossings located on any type of road: from residential streets to pedestrian crossings on two-lane roads. Properly selected elements of the system ensure strong lighting of the entire passage area, including the area in front of the lanes, and very low glare towards the driver.

Thanks to the use of radio communication between the system elements, the installation of the Safe Pedestrian Crossing Lighting System does not require laying cables in the ground, making the investment cheaper and faster to implement compared to the traditional construction of lighting poles.

How the Safe Pedestrian Crossing Lighting System works

The pedestrian activates the button and starts the system.

The radio control system turns on the flashes and increa-ses the power of street lamps on both sides of the road.

The power of street lamps illuminating the crossing is automatically increased, thanks to which the pedestrian becomes more visible to oncoming drivers

Yellow signaling lamps mounted on poles with flashing signals let them know to drivers coming from both sides that there is a pedestrian at the crossing

Due to the fact that the lighting of passages is often connected to the external lighting network, which is only turned on at night, the buffer power supply system with batteries allows you to accumulate energy during the night and then use it during the day.
