Johnson Controls Completes Touchless Pedestrian Crossings in Melbourne

Johnson Controls has teamed up with BRAUMS, a leading intelligent traffic systems provider, and Victoria’s Department of Transport (formerly VicRoads) to trial contact free push button technology at pedestrian crossings.

The first locations of the trial are in front of Melbourne’s two busiest hospitals, The Royal Women’s Hospital and The Royal Melbourne Hospital. Johnson Controls’ automated pedestrian crossing technology retains the existing push button for the visually impaired while incorporating an infra-red capability that does not require members of the public to physically push the button. Pedestrians wave their hand in front of the device to trigger the pedestrian crossing lights and traffic signals.

With the initial trials conducted with the Department of Transport hailed a success, Johnson Controls is looking forward to expanding use of the technology. It is currently working with several local councils who own and maintain large numbers of pedestrian crossings and traffic signal assets, to deliver the next phase of trials.

Johnson Controls employs a large Australian-based engineering team that designs, delivers and maintains transportation and traffic management solutions. Its advanced urban traffic control (UTC) and intelligent transport systems (ITS) have been incorporated into major road networks both locally and around the world.

Johnson Controls said it has established relationships with many other road and traffic authorities across Australia, including NSW Roads and Maritime Services, Transport for NSW, and the QLD Department of Transport and Main Roads.
