Dynamic Message Signs (DMS), both permanent and portable signs, are vital components of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) in communicating with motorists on the road. These signs provide the traveling public with warnings pertaining to traffic congestion, crashes, incidents, construction, speed restrictions, etc. DMS are also used for Amber Alert and Silver Alert messages.

Deployment of this technology can provide the following benefits:

  • Provide up-to-date traveler information
  • Improved safety
  • Help motorists make informed trip decisions
  • Reduced congestion
  • Decreased incidents
  • Provide travel time information in conjunction with vehicle probe data or detectors
