This highly responsive system uses Bartco’s Intellicone technology for the efficient management of temporary traffic situations.

A Master Traffic Management Unit (TMS) is triggered by an external device – for instance a red light on a traffic light signal – which in turn activates a message on any number of Intellicone-enabled variable message signs (VMS).

Once the trigger is released, the VMS is cleared or alternatively can be programmed to display a default message. For complete flexibility, a delay can be programmed into the system if required.
