Innovative LCD traffic signal
Among a range of innovations that Turkish company Isbak will highlight at Intertraffic is an eye-catching traffic light that uses LCD panels rather than traditional lamps or LEDs for the red, amber and green signals. The use of LCDs means that information - notably a countdown until the signals are due to change - can be superimposed on the signal lights.
The space below or above the active signal, meanwhile, can be used to show other information, such as traffic signs, weather graphics or directions to nearby facilities, such as hospitals or parking. “You can put on whatever information you want, depending on the software,” says Isbak’s business development expert Alper Baloglu.
