Variable Message Signs (VMSs) are electronic and intelligent display panels for road traffic management that allow text and graphic variable messages to be combined, resulting in a more effective means of controlling traffic.
Sernis VMSs are built with long-life LED technology that improves visibility in all types of weather. Through the use of a solar sensor, the brightness can be adjusted for both clear day and night viewing.
VMSs can make drivers aware of speed limits, weather conditions and other traffic laws. They are efficient in preventing the inappropriate behaviour of road users, such as poor evaluation of risk, lack of attention and misunderstanding of road signs. Other benefits include increases in safety, lower stress levels, better decisions and mobility.
The versatility of Variable Message Signs makes them suitable for providing traffic information for a variety of situations including emergencies and road closures.
Sernis also provides VMSs in accordance of European standard, EN12966. Each sign can display different symbols and warnings in several languages.
The VMS system can be integrated with other traffic control and management systems. Sernis manufactures and customises any type of VMS on request.
