mattc, I am not smarter, just more bored, perhaps.
Well I STILL can't find it, even knowing the name  :facepalm:

Anyway, job done, thanks!

Perth see replacing beg buttons with sensor based systems. Looks like Dundee might too.

Which could possibly lead to a similar set up to junctions where the light phasing can be fully reactive (speculation)

I hope they'll work a bit better than the sensors at many puffins.

But isn't reactive what they are now? They only change in reaction to a button being pressed. If they can detect people walking towards the crossing and somehow distinguish those who want to cross from those simply walking by, then they could maybe be proactive - starting changing before pedestrians get to the crossing. Whether that will happen...
