Using Live Beacon technology with our innovation the Highways Dashboard enables the owner to control the functionality of their beacons. Coventry City Council are our first client to have over 300 beacons embedded within the Tac-Grid tactile system throughout the city. The Highways Dasboard will give control of their beacons to change the information the pedestrian hears, an interactive map of the beacon locations, analytics to show usage of the crossings and beacons, develope wayfinders to points of interest within the city, maintain the beacons for battery life etc , Inform pedestrains if a crossing isnt working and location of the nearest safe place to cross. There are many more functions we can add to the dashboard to customise for each Local Authority. The dashboard and beacon technology can be used in many other locations ie railway stations, retail parks, airports the list is endless
