Button by Neatebox

Category: 

Description of App: 

Button by Neatebox is the worlds first smartphone operated pedestrian crossing. Locating the crossing box and pressing the button on a controlled crossing is challenging for many people with disabilities, and more often than not the crossing boxes are located in awkward positions. There is no consistency with the placement.

Button by Neatebox places a Bluetooth device inside the crossing box which is then activated by the Button by Neatebox app when a user is at the crossing, without the user having to actually press the button themselves because the app has done this via Bluetooth for you. There is also the option to increase the time allowed to cross the road for those with reduced mobility.
