Smart Arrow Board

THIS IS A SMART ARROW BOARD

In this ITS application, an ITS beacon is added to the existing arrow board on your TMA truck to make your work zone connected.  When in use, this smart arrow board sends live data to most popular navigation systems, which in turn alerts motorists to an upcoming work zone.  When drivers are given earlier notice of a live work zone, this allows for:

  • Some drivers to re-route, avoiding your work zone entirely
  • More time to for them to safely adjust to changing driving conditions (e.g. speed limit decreases, shift in lanes)

With this technology added to the existing hardware on your truck, your work zone can become that much safer for not only your work crew but also passing motorists.

WHAT IS AN INTELLIGENT
TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM?

An intelligent transportation system (ITS) is an innovative application of communication technologies that aim to make our transportation networks “smarter” by improving safety, mobility, or efficiency.

While ITS is a broad term covering many different applications, major benefits include:

  • Sharing information to ease traffic congestion
  • Increased safety in work zones
  • Improved driving experience for the traveling public
