The Intelligent Transportation System (ITS) is the most sought after technology in traffic management. It enables the authorities to manage the traffic inside the city, on the highways and along the freeways without being physically present everywhere. It informs the people of every small incident and accident that can eat up their time and provides alternate route for smooth exit from the affected zone.
To implement them, the ITS needs its best sentinel, the Variable Message Signs (VMS). The VMS can be used to display any message or information anywhere the operator wants and help improve the traffic conditions of the place. The VMS is dynamic in nature and is always ready to ease out the traffic congestion with minimum efforts.
The VMS is one of the most fascinating devices which have ever been used to manage the traffic and improve the road conditions. It was used for the first time in 1960s and has now become an indispensable product that is used for communicating with the drivers on roads. It is used on highways, major traffic junctions and also in the arterial streets and roads. Installed along both the sides of the roads or above the road, the high quality text and images can penetrate even dense fog and snow conditions.
The Intelligent Transport System keeps in mind the areas which are not so crammed up but can cause traffic issues in other areas on special occasions. It can pose a threat to the people in running their daily chores. Such places can also be far off from the city but to reach those places, the city roads are used and everything gets jam-packed. The ITS uses the Variable Message Signs to uniformly distribute the crowd and direct the vehicles in different directions to manage the traffic and takes care of the smooth flow of vehicles on the city roads.
