SES America has successfully completed installation of 24 solar-powered M5000 SOLAR Task-Specific Dynamic Message Signs (DMS) at nine locations across Cape Cod, Massachusetts, US.
The installations are part of the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s real traffic time monitoring initiative, which intends to relieve highly congested areas of Cape Cod during the busy spring and summer tourist seasons, by providing travel time information to motorists at key locations along busy stretches of highway.
Information is provided using Bluetooth readers in conjunction with the travel time modules – all powered solely by solar panels.
Each sign uses state-of-the-art, high-efficiency display boards outfitted with high-intensity LEDs and a patented tilting mechanism capable of refining the viewing angle to ensure the travel times are visible to all passing motorists.
This contract was a challenge as detail design and complete DMS production had to be made in two months to meet contractual deadlines.
The team at SESA and its partners are proud of this achievement.
SESA will also install three full-size, solar-powered DMS as part of the project, which will be the first fully solar-powered, full-size DMS ever installed in the commonwealth.
