Guidelines for Accessible Pedestrian Signals

The objective of this research is to develop guidelines and training materials for implementation of accessible pedestrian signals (APS). The guidelines will explain how APS will provide optimal information through media such as tones and tactile or verbal indicators, and under what circumstances their installation is recommended. The training materials will facilitate application of the guidelines and installation and operation of APS. This training will be oriented toward technical issues and public education.
