Bartco UK and MVIS integrate ITS technology
First publishedin ITS International
VMS manufacturer Bartco UK used Traffex to showcase its integration of ITS products which aim to increase road safety.
The company is working with SRL Traffic Systems on the integration of its HD Quattro portable variable message sign (VMS) with temporary traffic lights, designed to show basic safety information during temporary traffic light installation and road works.
Measuring 650mm x 750mm, the sign is being integrated on the same boxes and posts SRL uses for its Radiolight temporary traffic lights and powered by their batteries. The integrated HD Quattro will be a safety and information sign, informing road users of road works being installed and the speed limit.
The VMS will also be deployed within work zones to manage on-site traffic.
With the addition of a radar, the HD Quattro can also be used as a speed-activated sign to increase its effectiveness and run times.
