Activation Systems

Wavebutton™ Touchless Pedestrian Button

The Wavebutton™ Touchless Pedestrian Button provides a touchless alternative to a traditional mechanical or electronic push button. The button senses motion using pulsed coherent radar (PCR), precisely capturing a pedestrian’s hand gesture.

Passive Activation Bollard Systems

Take advantage of a passive activation system to capture nearly 100% of the pedestrians and cyclists who pass between the bollards. Available in a variety of colours, LaneLight IR bollards can be placed up to 70 feet apart and are engineered for many years of trouble free service. Excellent for busy crosswalks near schools, hospitals, and airports or at crosswalks having compliance issues with traditional pushbuttons.

Overheight Sensors

Overheight sensors detect vehicles exceeding a specified height limit, activating nearby warning systems to prevent potential accidents. An overheight sensor system is well suited for tunnels, bridges or low underpasses where there is a possibility of a collision between the overhead structure and the vehicle passing underneath.

Both vertical and horizontal sensors are available. Horizontal sensors emit two solid beams that extend across a roadway, whereas vertical sensors are mounted above laneways to a gantry, pointing downwards.

Lidar “Sentinel” Bollards and Pole Mount Sensors

Touchless lidar sentinel sensors detect pedestrians and cyclists using a single-beam sensor, meaning only one sensor is required. The sensor creates a projection zone to sense movement within the zone, sensing both speed and direction.

The sensors may be pole mounted, placed in a bollard, or mounted overhead in a generic camera housing. With a sensor range of up to 32 feet and speed detection up to 50 MPH, the lidar sentinel sensor is highly versatile.

Infrared and Microwave Camera Sensors

Infrared cameras such as the sensor shown in the adjacent image (left side product) are mounted above a crosswalk, pointing downwards. The sensor uses thermal imaging to detect pedestrians, cyclists and vehicles, even in total darkness. Infrared cameras are extremely accurate, with over 95% accuracy. They also include a built-in video camera for additional visual support.

Microwave cameras (right side product in the adjacent image) are sensors often used to detect if a pedestrian is still on the roadway when the walk/do not walk signal is about to change. If a pedestrian is detected in the roadway, still using the crossing, the walk signal is extended to ensure the crosswalk is cleared. Microwave cameras are pole mounted and uni-directional, meaning two sensors are needed if two-way coverage is required.

5-Year Warranty

Our commitment to quality allows LaneLight warning systems to be backed by a full 5-year warranty (normal wear and tear included) and have a projected service life of up to 15 years, depending on operational conditions. Our 5-year warranty includes installations in snowfall regions where LaneLight in-road systems are installed just below grade so they never come into contact with snow-plow blades.
