AUSTRIAN NATIONAL TRAFFIC AWARD FOR SWARCO FUTURIT

03/18/2010

On March 17th, Austrian Transport Minister Doris Bures handed over the National Awards in TRAFFIC. The winners in the category "Products/system solutions implemented on the market" are partnering organisations EBE Solutions, SWARCO FUTURIT, ÖBB Infrastruktur AG and the Austrian Road Safety Board (KfV).

The award refers to the project "Intelligent System for the Identification and Signalisation at Level-Crossing with variable message signs or LaneLights (ISIS)". This cost-effective solution has now been implemented by the Austrian Railways at over 40 level-crossings that have no particular technical security devices. ISIS increases safety at these blackspots by warning drivers approaching the rails. LED-based VMS and/or LaneLight LED in-road markers start flashing and thus increase awareness and help avoid severe accidents at the interface of road and rail.
