Connected/Smart Arrow Boards | Ver-Mac

How Does a Connected Arrow Board Work?

Smart arrow boards are connected, allowing them to communicate information to relevant parties. Thanks to its modem, data is sent to our JamLogic software and flows through the Work Zone Data Exchange. Information can then be sent to DOTs, 511, the Traffic Management Center (TMC), Waze, navigation systems, connected vehicles and via email-SMS alerts. 

If you own “regular” arrow boards, it is possible to convert them into smart arrow boards using our universal smart arrow board module.

Basic Information 

  • Lane closure start location
  • GPS location
  • Mode displayed on arrow board

Advanced Information

  • Road name where deployed (when available)
  • Activity log (where, which mode, on/off, deployed)

Optional

  • Position of the arrow board (deployed or in transport mode)
  • Direction of the arrow board

  • Utility and maintenance crews
  • Rolling lane closures
  • Nighttime asphalt paving & bridge closures

Benefits of Using a Connected Arrow Board

Improved Safety and Mobility

Improved Safety and Mobility

    Government agencies: 

    • Know where closures are located 
    • Can proactively manage traffic conditions for the motoring public
       
Transparent Technology

Transparent Technology

    Information can be sent to 3rd party data providers such as Waze and other navigation systems, connected vehicles and more, allowing motorists to be aware of lane closures ahead of time.

Data Logging

Data Logging

    Government agencies have a history of:

    • Work zone locations
    • Duration of lane closure

Features

  • Nothing new for field personnel to learn. With connected/smart arrow boards, it’s business as usual
  • Real-time display and location information is pushed to the cloud
  • Know when the arrow is in transport mode
  • Access location and display history
  • When paired with work zone end markers, the connected/smart arrow board can provide the length of lane closures 

Frequently Asked Questions about Connected Arrow Boards

How do connected arrow boards improve safety in work zones?

Lane closures can be short or long-term and are often unexpected by drivers. These closures often result in traffic queues. Connected/smart arrow boards can help push notifications into motorists’ apps and in-vehicle displays to alert and safely prepare them to navigate these critical areas.

Can my existing arrow boards be converted into connected/smart arrow boards?

Yes, any existing arrow board can be connected by adding our retrofit kit.

How can I tell if the sign is not being utilized (if the display is still on)?

Our transport sensor ignores arrow board trailers that were not blanked when they are lowered into a transport travel mode. This ensures that only accurate information is being pushed to the cloud.
