What is Wrong Way Alert™?
Wrong Way Alert™ is a Scalable Intrusion Warning System designed to retrofit on existing Wrong Way signage. Wrong Way Alert™ raises driver awareness in dangerous “wrong way driver” situations. The system is affordable, scalable, solar or AC powered and designed for quick retrofit installation. Wrong Way Alert™ consists of System Expandable components which can be purchased separately as needed.
Wrong Way Alert™ System Expansion & Upgrades
The WWA System is a highly advanced Wrong Way warning system that can be specifically engineered to accommodate the various specific needs and challenges of each application. Also, cell technology allows for automatically alerting law enforcement or traffic safety personnel via SMS or email, that a wrong way incident is occurring.
Truly Scalable System
Highway on and off ramps come in all shapes and sizes. Because of the extreme danger caused by inadvertent wrong way drivers in these situations, an alert system has been needed which can easily be adapted to the particular roadway design.Our Enhancement Bar Controllers have been designed to activate simultaneously and communicate with one another wirelessly. Each Enhancement Bar Controller has a range of up to 500’ in ideal conditions. Range can be extended by strategic placement since the units pass along network communications until they reach the intended units. This capability can allow the network to “see” around obstacles and terrain in complicated on or off ramp situations. The mesh-net architecture allows for many configurations.
