Välkky Sign – An Intelligent Traffic Sign

Additional safety for pedestrian crossings

A half of pedestrian traffic accidents take place in dark or poor visibility conditions, and almost a half take place at pedestrian crossings. The first in the world entirely illuminated intelligent traffic sign is the new Cyclope Sign. Cyclope Sign illuminates the pedestrian crossing sign in a natural way, from inside the sign. The blinking pedestrian crossing sign draws drivers’ attention to people moving at the pedestrian crossing area.

Cyclope Sign in a nutshell

Cyclope Sign is a battery powered, illuminated membrane reflector sign for a pedestrian crossing. Operating with a twilight switch and sensors, the sign illuminates when a pedestrian or bicyclist is about to enter the pedestrian crossing area. In day time the sign works as a normal two-sided reflecting traffic sign of a pedestrian crossing.
