TAPCO®

Traffic Device Monitoring Built for Smart City Infrastructure
BlinkLink® powered by TAPCO is an easy-to-use, cloud-based application cities utilize to manage, schedule, control and monitor system-wide time clocks and intelligent warning systems. By collecting real-time data, BlinkLink® provides transportation officials the intelligence to respond immediately to ongoing traffic emergencies through email/SMS alert notifications sent via TAPCO Wrong-Way Driver Detection Systems and other intelligent warning systems. Connected through reliable cellular networks, BlinkLink® is secured through encrypted communication.

Overview of TAPCO’s Intelligent Warning Systems
TAPCO’s Solar LED Division is dedicated to innovative, green solutions that make travel safer for all road users: vehicular, pedestrians and pedalcyclists alike. If you need a custom solution please contact our team of flashing LED sign product specialists, we’ll gladly discuss the possibilities with you.

Rectangular Rapid Flash Beacon (RRFB)
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.

Sequential Dynamic Curve Warning System
TAPCO’s Dynamic Curve Warning Systems, or DCWS. These DCWS feature TAPCO’s flashing LED BlinkerSigns, which are solar-powered traffic signs enhanced with brilliant LEDs. The BlinkerSigns provide advanced warning of and guidance through the curve, and are ITS-compatible

TAPCO High Water Warning System
Inclement weather and disasters often leave little time to properly warn drivers of the proper routes to shelters or safety. These weather conditions often obscure visibility of standard signage. BlinkerSign® LED-enhanced solar traffic signs provide notification and awareness of closed roads, evacuation routes or dangerous driving conditions. The advanced warning allows drivers to turn around and take alternate routes preventing backups. Each MUTCD compliant BlinkerSign® is built to weather harsh conditions and emergency scenarios.

RRFB and In Lane Light
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. The model available here includes all the hardware and components for a solar powered RRFB-XL pushbutton activated crosswalk system.

Emergency Vehicle Egress Warning System
Emergency crews deserve safe, ready access to streets adjacent to their fire house or emergency vehicle location. The egress onto the street or highway may pose visibility challenges (such as curves and obstructions), or the posted speeds may warrant an added warning. Speeders and distracted drivers only compound the problem.

Emergency Vehicle Flashing BlinkerSign® and BlinkerBeacon™ provide a high-visibility advance warning to drivers approaching the emergency vehicle station egress or ingress. The BlinkerSign® can be wirelessly activated from multiple methods, including a push-button in the vehicle station or remote activation key fobs in emergency vehicles.
