Test of Traficon SafeWalk and C-Walk pedestrian detectors

The Department for Transport commissioned TRL to assist in the development of vehicle and pedestrian systems for urban traffic management. One of the strands of the work is to assess the performance of new detection systems. TRL tested the Traficon C-Walk pedestrian on-crossing detector and the SafeWalk kerbside detector to ensure they met the requirements of TR2506 and TR2507 respectively. Testing took place at TRL’s test track facility, under a variety of conditions.
