As measures to heighten road safety while improving traffic efficiency increase, the demand for variable message signs (VMS) that provide reliable information, are portable and easy to install, has grown. Traffic Safe effectively meets these demands.
"Traffic Safe is innovative because it offers complete solutions of radars and VMS, in a range of sizes, for rent," notes Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Aswin Kumar. "Traffic Safe is safe and easy to install. Another innovative feature is that the sign boards are self-powered by solar cells, implying that they can be installed in remote locations."
Multiple technologies underlie the successful functioning of Traffic Safe. These include the use of GPRS, GSM or other private radio communication between signal components and the control centre to track the VMS, as well as roadside radars for vehicle detection, video cameras, barriers, etc.
"Also laudable is the provision of an innovative and self-sufficient energy source, independent of the mains, through photovoltaics," adds Kumar. "The self-sufficient power source is a key element in the flexibility of the installation procedure. Accordingly, Green Way Systems has effectively leveraged leading edge technology to ensure optimal product functionality."
The value-added features of Traffic Safe include efficient and accurate road information coupled with corresponding road warning systems. Conventional features include traffic jam warnings, hazard signaling, black ice warnings, traffic guidance, diversion recommendations, and general information. Furthermore, accurate real time traffic information adds significant value to this product without compromising production time or cost.
"The increased customer value of Green Way System's Traffic Safe is the result of a continuous growth curve and the launch of this technology/service in a new country every year," remarks Hans-Georg Reicherdt. "Being the largest company of rented tailor-made applications in Western Europe, Green Way is able to offer high quality services at a reasonable price, making it a solid investment choice."
There exists sizeable market potential for Traffic Safe in the European road safety system. The product has captured over 70 per cent of the market in the past 6 years, a figure that is bound to expand due to the innovative and cost-effective features of the product.
