Automated Flagger Assistance Device

Automated Flagger Assistance Device (AFAD) is a remotely operated temporary traffic control device equipped with an automated gate arm and a light head. In place of the traditional flagger with stop/go paddles, these devices can direct and control traffic using only one operator and are designed for daily, short-term lane closures. Instantly deploy one on the roadway to safely and efficiently manage traffic.
