” Reduce energy consumption by a factor of up to 1000 compared to LED VMS.

How solar-powered signs work

Equipped with solar panels, these smart signs harness sunlight, converting it into electricity. This stored energy powers the sign, eliminating the need for external power sources. This efficiency of this system is optimized to the point where it also functions without any trouble during cloudy days or during nighttime.

Benefits of wireless communication

One major advantage of smart traffic signs is their capability for wireless communication. By eliminating the need for inconvenient cabling and underground wiring, deployment becomes easier and more flexible. Moreover, wireless tech allows for real-time updates, syncing multiple signs and making roadways more adaptive and responsive.
