The information steps for the user, the good use of the existing road capacity, can be optimized if the user is given enough information of the roads state to choose the most convenient itinerary to reach their destiny.
For this, there are 7 variable message panels (PMV) manipulated from the MOVIMA observatory, telling the drivers the state of traffic in different lanes. In this waythey can choose an alternative itinerary when there are problems like total or partial road close downs due to accidents, breakdowns etc. and programmed events which have previously been studied (lane shutdowns due to road works, sport events etc).
The panels have two lines of 12 characters to show messages about specific matters and a pictogram that helps back up the information shown.
For more information, consult the situation map where the 7 installed panels are shown.
