This project, sponsored by Dansk Blindesamfund, investigated Accessible Pedestrian Signal systems to improve accessibility for people with visual impairments in Copenhagen. Current APS devices have problems with audibility, noise pollution, maintenance, and cost. Various systems were analyzed after investigating the needs of the visually impaired, the community and the government. Short-term solutions include changing the signal tone from beeping to knocking and improving error reporting. Long-term solutions should work towards a more tactile-oriented system.
