Mobile VMS first deployed variable message signage and journey time integration on the M4 3-12 Motorway Upgrade in July 18. Their JamLogic intelligent interface software was user-friendly and provided excellent project overview and control alongside valuable customer data and reporting in relation to journey time. The company’s operations team communicated professionally with our onsite traffic management team and deployed their system seamlessly. As the project grew and there were additional requirements beyond the initial contract, the Mobile VMS team delivered efficiently and integrated journey time reliability technologies seamlessly. This supplier also became an integral member of our 60mph project team. They deployed microwave traffic sensors which provided critical information to TRL (speed, volume, lane occupancy, headway and vehicle classification) enabling Highways England and Balfour Beatty VINCI JV to make informed, carefully considered decisions about running at 60mph through the scheme. The Mobile VMS project team attended weekly briefings as part of the 60mph project and displayed a collaborative approach to ensure these trials ran safely and effectively. Thanks to the technical prowess of this company, the M4 project was the first scheme of its kind to fully automate SVD warning on a VMS, due to advanced digital integration with Videcon stopped vehicle detection system.
