Road signs has been with us for a very long time. What has not been with us is innovation in the road signs industry. As a matter of fact, while electronic has penetrated a number of other sectors of our life, road signs are yet to witness and drastic or dramatic change.
This might soon be a thing of the past as D-Net Communications, a Norwegian based electronic design company is currently thinking on the concept of a programmable road signs. The thinking is that road signs must be interactive, changeable on the fly depending on the environmental condition and conditions on the road.
With the concept, it is possible for road signs to monitor road traffics and provide appropriate report, divert traffics, slow traffic down and warn of dangers ahead.
