Richard Neumann enters the three-dimensional Swarco World
Visitors to the two Swarco stands are in for a ‘fireworks of innovation’ and a scintillating virtual reality (VR) experience where they can enter a three-dimensional Swarco World, based on advanced gaming technology.
Swarco improves quality of life by making the travel experience safer, quicker, more convenient and environmentally sound, and the company’s stands and presentation will fully underline these objectives.
On its Road Marking Systems (RMS) stand (05.310) the focus is on a complete range of road marking systems: the virtual reality experience enables visitors to immerse themselves in entirely novel ways in a range of challenges to tackle this area. Products being highlighted on the stand include the launch of a novel, fast-curing marking system for indoor use called Swarco-UV-Line that is dry and functional just a few seconds after application.
Swarco is also featuring Solidplus, the top-class reflective glass beads delivering 4-digit millicandela readings on reflectometers, as well as the company’s Eurotherm and Eurotac preformed thermoplastic and coldplastic markings.
Meanwhile, on Swarco’s Traffic Management / ITS / Smart Mobility stand (10.103) the focus is on comprehensive capabilities in connecting infrastructure and vehicles by means of C-ITS-ready solutions in urban and interurban traffic management and public transport. Visitors can delve into the central system managing traffic in more liveable cities and how Traffic Management as a Service works.
Also on display is a charging infrastructure for electrical vehicles, plus the brand new Swarco.Evolt.Connect back office for e-mobility management. Other features of the stand include public transport prioritisation, the next generation PT management software and new helpful on-board devices for information and control.
There is also an energy-saving variable message sign with a brilliant new optical system; parking guidance systems and online platforms to manage parking from end-to-end; as well as an intelligent intersection, featuring novel LED traffic lights that integrate new features beyond red-amber-green, such as environmental data collection.
Watch out too, for Swarco.Line.Technology, a novel approach to clean up intersections by needing less hardware and opening up new communication possibilities between the traffic controller and the signal heads. There is also a focus on bicycle traffic with the launch of an App-based cooperative system.
