Hearing / The traffic sound signals

Hearing
Hearing

For a visually impaired person, the « sounds » are the most effective and the most convenient way to receive messages. Nowadays, the pedestrian signals merely play with sounds, and those playing with sounds were removed due to complaints from the public. Therefore, HEARING improves the defects of current pedestrian signals playing with sounds. By implementing Radio Frequency Identification System (RFID), we could provide directional sound signals and the prolongation functions to make sure that the sight-impaired people arrive precisely and safely to the other side of the road.
