Visitors to the two Swarco
stands at Intertraffic Amsterdam 2018 are being promised “a fireworks of innovation” and a scintillating virtual reality (VR) experience where they will 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 will be on a complete range of road marking systems: the virtual reality experience will enable 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 an innovative, fast-curing marking system for indoor use called Swarco-UV-Line that is dry and functional just a few seconds after application.
Swarco will also be 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. They are used for small-scale markings with symbols, legends, logos, and as easy-to-install guidance system for the visually impaired and blind on a range of applications including train station platforms, sidewalks and bus-stops.
Meanwhile, on Swarco’s Traffic Management / ITS / Smart Mobility stand (10.103) the company will focus on its 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 (TmaaS) works.
Also on display will be a charging infrastructure for electrical vehicles, plus the brand new Swarco.Evolt.Connect back office for e-mobility management. Other features of the stand will be public transport prioritisation, the next generation PT management software and new helpful on-board devices for information and control; the world’s most energy-saving variable message sign (VMS) 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, pedestrian detection and a warning feature for the head-down generation who rather concentrate on smartphones than on traffic.
Watch out too, for Swarco.Line.Technology, a different approach to cleaning 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.
