Connected Arrow Board

Real-Time Connection Between Work Zone’s and Vehicles

WHAT IS AN INTELLIGENT
TRANSPORTATION SYSTEM?

An intelligent transportation system (ITS) is the application of communication technologies to ground transportation in order to improve safety, mobility and efficiency.

ITS includes a wide range of applications that process and share information to ease congestion, improve traffic management, minimize environmental impact and increase the benefits of transportation to commercial users and the public in general.

THIS IS A SMART ARROW BOARD

This connected tech is essentially an ITS beacon for your arrow board. It turns any existing arrow board into a connected work zone. By sending real-time data to Information Transportation Systems, you provide drivers with up to date navigation information.

Motorists are alerted via their navigation systems and mobile devices far in advance about the presence of your work zone. This averts more traffic away from your operations and allows drivers to navigate through active work zones as safely and as quickly as possible.
