It occurs to me the cleverness (person detection) of current (farside) toucans is an optional extra:
a cyclist should be capable of matching the speed of a fit pedestrian so lighting a green cycle symbol during the steady green figure phase (perhaps extended a little?) of a pelican-type crossing and extinguishing it during the flashing figure phase could have sufficed?
As fixed time(dumb) toucans (with short blackout instead of flashing) exist at traffic light controlled junctions, I suppose the answer is yes.
NB the Australians use a flashing red figure rather than flashing green: some part of me wonders if that makes more or less sense.
