Work Zones are Dangerous
According to the Federal Highway Administration
there were 40,000 accidents and 845 fatalities
in highway work zones in 2007. Traditional
human flaggers are often the victim and/or
the cause of these accidents.
The Automated Flagger removes human
flaggers from the roadway, and can be
operated by a single person.
The combination of Red/Yellow Signal
Lights and Gate Arm offers the
highest visibility option for traffic.
With redundant controls and an electronic
conflict monitor, the AF-100 system
reduces the human error that in the
past has been the cause of crashes.
