Traffic Sign Guiding Tile / Traffic sign

Traffic Sign Guiding Tile
Traffic Sign Guiding Tile

This is a re-design of the Blind Guiding Tile.
In this concept, there are 2 directions, vertical and horizontal, of the protruding shape on the guiding tile that informs the blind pedestrian which direction is green light. The protruding pattern of the Traffic Sign Guiding Tile is the enlarged version of the directional tiles. And they are placed in a matrix arrangement like the current positioning tile. So it’s intuitive and easy for the blind pedestrian to understand without learning effort.
