How do Electronic Road Signs Work? – ITS Tech Talk

4 November 2020
05:00AM-05:30AM AEDT


ITS Australia's ITS Tech Talk series is transport technology 101. Each episode will serve as an introduction to one key part of the ITS industry . . . this is episode 3.

This talk will give a brief overview of the standards and underlying technologies of electronic road signs and focus on the considerations that must be taken when manufacturing them. We’ll also take a brief look at the future of electronic signs and where we might be heading with operator to driver communications. Register for this, and all of our upcoming ITS Tech Talks, through the ITS Australia Portal.

What you will learn

  • What’s the difference between an electronic road sign and an electronic billboard?
  • What happens when we don’t follow standards?

Dr Mahmood Hikmet is the head of Research and Development at HMI Technologies and Ohmio. As both an ITS infrastructure company and an autonomous vehicle manufacturer, Mahmood’s position at HMI Technologies and Ohmio allow him to see ITS from the perspective of both infrastructure and vehicles, with a keen interest in bridging the gap. As technologies become more complex Mahmood firmly believes that more effort needs to be placed in presenting technical information to non-technical audiences so that all stakeholders have the knowledge required to make informed decisions.
