Button by Neatebox touchless pedestrian crossing control system

South Dublin County Council, Roads Department has installed the ‘Button by Neatebox’. This is a touchless pedestrian crossing control system in two locations within the County (Tallaght Hospital and Ninth Lock Road Clondalkin near the post office). 

With Button, people can use their mobile phone to virtually ‘press’ the pedestrian crossing button. It can be used to operate pedestrian crossings safely and confidently.
The free App is available on iOS or Android and allows users to focus on their surroundings without having to stretch or search for the button.
Some of the benefits include:
Reduced anxiety: With the automatic button push, users do not have to worry about locating the manual button or getting near to it. It is a touchless system which is an additional benefit to public health and safety
Automatic push enabled: Users can operate the auto push facility which will enable them to activate a button push while leaving their device in their pocket
More time to cross: Users can start to cross from the edge of the pavement being perfectly aligned for a safe crossing. This will give them effectively more time to cross
Data-driven decisions: The system collects usage data with every interaction which can be used for the provision of more efficient traffic management and infrastructure planning
This system is being trialled by the Council’s Roads Department in two locations and any further roll out of the system will depend on the usage data collected and availability of resources.
