A new energy-efficient portable video wall developed by intelligent transport system (ITS) solution manufacturer Bartco UK, in partnership with Highways England, has been launched.
Displaying high resolution static images - such as those showing the project under way - as well as text, Bartco UK’s Electronic Bill Board (EBB) enables road users to stay informed on the progress of road improvements.
High quality images on the 3 x 2m, 504 x 336 pixel display can be presented independently or alongside explanatory text.
The EBB was developed by Bartco UK at the request of Highways England for use on its 21-mile Cambridge to Huntingdon A14 upgrade scheme, where it is currently being trialled (above).
Bartco said the product’s energy-efficient power consumption is lower than 13 amps on a 230 volt supply for a typical message at full brightness.
The EBB is supplied on a 4,050mm trailer, and may be updated locally via PC or laptop using dedicated software or via Android and Apple devices using a dedicated app, or remotely via PC with the optional 3G module.
Highways England’s project manager, Nick Nandhra: 'Bartco UK’s EBB is performing well on the A14 upgrade scheme. The electronic bill boards enable us to communicate with drivers travelling on the A14 and support our commitment to improve the experience of road users driving through roadworks.'
