The fatal victim costs PLN 2.4 million. Injured - more, as much as PLN 3.3 million. The published report of the National Road Safety Council shows that we are all victims of accidents. The death toll in 2019 increased again. The report shows that the social costs of all road incidents in Poland in 2018 amounted to PLN 56.6 billion. Including 44.9 billion are accident costs and 11.7 billion collisions. Almost 1/3 of this amount is generated by events at pedestrian crossings.

 In order to meet the need to reduce accidents at pedestrian crossings and their tragic consequences, we have developed a system of early warning drivers and mobilizing pedestrians to be cautious in the pedestrian crossing zone. Human tragedy don't know the price, therefore all actions to prevent it are particularly important for the safety of road users. The National Road Safety Program for 2013-2020 assumes the dissemination and implementation of road protection measures for road users, in particular pedestrians and cyclists (infrastructure and traffic organization taking into account the needs of pedestrians and cyclists). When developing our system, we were guided by the broadly understood knowledge in the field of road safety, road traffic psychology, and road engineering.

We hope that the solution that we offer you will effectively contribute to the improvement of pedestrian safety.

Smart pedestrian crossing has many advantages over the so-called classic transitions worth mentioning. Active pedestrian crossing by Alumast S.A. provides detection of pedestrians in the waiting zone and at the crossing, which in turn activates warning light signals installed in the pole facing the drivers in order to inform them early about the presence of a pedestrian. Active pedestrian crossing by Aumast S.A. provides detection of pedestrians in the waiting zone and at the crossing, which in turn activates warning light signals installed in the pole facing the drivers in order to inform them early about the presence of a pedestrian. The pedestrian is identified in real time when he appears in the crossing zone, and when the pedestrian leaves the road, the system turns off the warning light. This solution enables a faster reaction of the driver, who reacts better to the stimulus that occurs at a given moment than to the constantly broadcast warning signal used in classic crossings.

Additionally, a voice message for pedestrians is broadcast. The distinguishing feature of our company's passages is the composite pole, which is a safe and durable pole - resistant to corrosion, vandalism, theft and aging due to weather conditions. Our poles are distinguished by high passive safety.

The entire solution is complemented by adequate lighting of a pedestrian crossing. In the Smartpole Crossing system, this requirement is guaranteed by: LED luminaire with asymmetric light distribution, ensuring positive contrast, illuminating the silhouette of a pedestrian without dazzling drivers. The D6 reflective road signs installed on the poles have, as standard, the option of illuminating with constant or pulsating light synchronized with LED warning lamps.

To sum up - while developing our system, we were guided by aspects that will result in: proper visibility of a pedestrian - especially in adverse road and weather conditions, adequate visibility of the crossing and effective warning - both for drivers and pedestrians. We do all this with the aim of increasing the safety of road users, which is the overriding purpose of their use.
