Highways play an important role in making our everyday lives easier. They provide an essential means of getting from A to B in a fast and efficient way. However, high-speed traffic also brings certain challenges. On roads built for high-speed traffic, safety is of vital importance. The more real-time information motorists receive on the current traffic situation, the safer they are while driving.
For instance, roadside electronic message signs or in-vehicle displays can support drivers by
- warning them of traffic congestion,
- suggesting alternate routes,
- aiding in the flow of traffic by dynamically adjusting speed limits.
This information also helps road operators to quickly respond to changes in traffic conditions and efficiently manage incidents.
