Pedestrian Detection

The City is working with a number of pedestrian advocacy groups and will be deploying two pedestrian-oriented applications.  One of these applications is traditional pedestrian detection technology which will be able to determine if there is a potential conflict between an approaching CV equipped vehicle and the presence of a pedestrian in the crosswalk.   The driver of a vehicle approaching an intersections with this equipment installed will be notified if there is a pedestrian in the upcoming crosswalk. This includes an alert when a vehicle is turning into a pedestrian crosswalk.
