By using its own telemetry’s data from embedded gyroscope and accelerometer, HEXAGON clearly controls the Stop and Moving signal lights automatically regardless of the type of track (i.e. city, country or highway).
What is photocell data? I see Hexagon uses this to decide the brightness of my traffic signals.
Photodiode installed on the front of Remote Control generate the photocell data. The micro controller of Remote Control is in watchdog mode and when photocell data will exceed/downgrade the threshold level, micro controller will wake up and send appropriate telemetry to HEXAGON to increase/decrease the brightness of traffic signals.

HEXAGON’s Moving signal is working permanently. But when you are braking, the Stop signal turns on for 3 seconds. Hereupon the Stop signal turns off and the Moving signal turns on again.

HEXAGON knows you’re moving on the base its own telemetry data from embedded gyroscope and accelerometer.
