Pedestrian Sensors

C-Walk / SafeWalk

Video detection pedestrian sensors

FLIR’s pedestrian detection sensors are improving safety and efficiency at signalized intersections and pedestrian crossings. Detection of pedestrians allows for the dynamic control of traffic lights and warning lights, such as flashing beacons or in-road lighting

FLIR’s pedestrian sensors combine a video camera and detector in one unit. The sensors make use of predefined detection zones (“virtual loops”), superimposed on the video image. As soon as a pedestrian enters the predefined zone, a detection output is sent to the traffic light controller, enabling the activation of dynamic traffic signal schemes.

  • C-Walk: detection of crossing pedestrians
  • SafeWalk: detection of waiting and approaching, curbside pedestrians
