Versilis has launched the Swiftsign dynamic signage: a safe, fast and easy way to activate traffic signage or message boards from a distance. The system is simple and efficient and consists of a pivoting sign, a solar panel and a control box. Flashing lights can be added to the traffic sign to increase night-time visibility and to catch drivers’ attention under specific circumstances such as emergency procedures.
The dynamic signage is completely independent of any wiring for ease of installation or relocation. The Swiftsign can be easily activated with an RF unit, cellular phone, or a web-based application.
The system is a great in-between solution to static signs and variable message boards. The activation on demand makes the message only relevant when necessary and at the same time, the system is much more compact and economical than variable message boards. The system can be adapted to host any kind of signage or message board as long as it is reasonable in size and complies with local traffic regulations.
It can be used for a reversible lane, for repetitive lane closure operations or emergency operations. It is also useful for traffic signage that needs activation at hard to reach or dangerous sites, for variable dynamic road messages and any signage operation that is either repetitive, needs to be activated quickly on demand or is not easy to access.
The Swiftsign mechanism is the same as the one used by the Swiftgate technology and has proven to be reliable and efficient on multiple projects for a number of years and under harsh winter conditions.
