Sydney is one of the most iconic cities in the world, housing some of the most powerful companies and best tourist attractions. But having the most glorious opera house on the planet wasn’t enough for local Sydneysiders. The city is now making big moves towards modernising itself to become the first city in the world to introduce E-ink equipped parking signs.
Visionect, the Slovenian vendor has announced that the state of New South Wales’ Road and Maritime Services (RMS) have adopted the new signage concept to help ease the process of updating signs manually to announce upcoming events. Anyone who lives in Sydney will know that the roads are fairly difficult to navigate, especially when big events such as football matches and cricket matches are being held in the city’s stadiums. The efforts to appease traffic and congestion have resulted in the city now being able to update parking signs in the vicinity ahead of such events by changing certain parking arrangements around the city. The new concept will help commuters from parking illegally, receiving parking tickets and getting towed away if the parking regulations change in their area due to an event.
