Comparison of two types of APS
April 2001 - April 2003
This project in Atlanta will evaluate two types of APS, comparing crossings with each of two types of accessible pedestrian signals (receiver-based and pushbutton integrated) and a crossing without accessible signals. Measures will include the speed and accuracy of crossing, as well as self-reported levels of confidence and comfort in using each device. Data will be collected at two intersections of four-lane roadways on fifty participants who are totally blind or have no useable vision.
