Emergency Vehicle Egress Warning System
Browse real life on location examples.
TAPCO's pedestrian-activated rectangular rapid flash beacon (RRFB) systems produce 80-90 percent driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians at high-risk uncontrolled crossings. When activated by push button or motion detection, LED arrays flash a Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) specified alternating wig-wag pattern.
Side-mounted LED arrays flash concurrently to advise pedestrians that the units are actively flashing. The RRFB system produces the highest yielding rate of all traffic control devices not featuring a red display, and is four times more effective than the common standard round beacon. RRFBs cost less compared to other traffic control devices that produced similar vehicular yield rates.
Extra-Large Beacons Provide Greater Visibility, Ideal for High-Speed
and Multi-Lane Pedestrian and School Crossings.
80% Reduction to Yield to Pedestrian Traffic!*

Enhance this system with the use of BlinkLink® Powered by TAPCO. Easy-to-use, cloud-based application cities utilize to manage, schedule, control and monitor system-wide time clocks and other intelligent warning systems.
Systems can be activated and controlled with BlinkerBeam® self-powered wireless transmitters and receivers. These compact controllers activate systems wirelessly within a 1000 ft. range line of site (longer distances available with external antennas). BlinkerBeam® can be activated and controlled from a remote location, allowing for immediate implementation of warning, emergency and evacuation systems. Electric grid independence provides activation during power outages and remote locations.
Active infrared and microwave technologies work together to provide precise presence and accurate vehicle and pedestrian motion detection.
TAPCO's pedestrian activated RRFB systems have produced 80% to 90% driver compliance in yielding to pedestrians at high-risk uncontrolled crossings. When activated, the LED arrays flash an FHWA specified, alternating 'wig-wag' pattern. Side-mounted LED arrays flash concurrently to advise pedestrians that the units are flashing. This is the highest yielding rate of all devices not featuring a red display, and up to 4 times greater than standard round beacons. RRFBs cost less than other devices with similar vehicular yield rates.
