The Variable Message Signs (VMS) are the electronic sign boards installed beside the roads and highways to display various directions and information. The VMS gives official information to the travelers on the roads about special events and incidents. The signs can be altered with the press of a button and the operator in the control center can display messages related to the traffic congestions, incidents, accidents, speed limits, diversions, men at work, roadwork zones, etc. The VMS is used to display special messages on festivals and events across the city.
In urban areas, it helps them to guide the drivers to find the available parking space on special days. It also helps the people in choosing alternative routes to their destinations; limit their vehicle speed, early warning about an inclement weather, etc. The VMS by Houston System is made future-proof by the use of latest technology and manufacturing techniques.
