The inter road user conflict of interest bringing on the increase of traffic accident record; in the situation, that pedestrian group usually became the victim, specially the student and the elderly with limitation on crossing the street.

Pedestrian Crossing Protector (PIREN) will be a choice with the function of giving crossing guidance to pedestrian, at a special crossing demand condition. This instrument working concept is using minimum traffic time gap for guiding and managing crossing activity in proper and safe term. The sample crossing activity survey shows that pedestrian and speed characteristics weren’t suitable with the manual and need crossing facility. PIREN that was designed for that situation needs 12.11 seconds for taking across nine people, produces delta-flow and delta-degree of saturation as 24.796 pcu/hr and 0.0104 pts.
