NEC supplies Sitronics with displays for the Moscow Intelligent Transport System (ITS)

*** For immediate use May 13, 2014

Moscow and London, 13 May 2014NEC Corporation (NEC; TSE: 6701)  announced today that NEC Neva Communications Systems (NEC Neva) has completed the delivery and installation of LED displays for SITRONICS KASU as part of the new intelligent transport system (ITS) in Moscow.

The 28 LED displays, each 9 square meters in area, are designed to inform drivers about traffic jams, accidents and weather forecasts in real-time, helping them select the best route to reach their destination quickly which is already reducing congestion in the city.
The information on the displays can be seen by the drivers up to a maximum of 250 meters away. The screen brightness levels adjust automatically according to external light conditions or can be managed remotely by an operator to ensure that they can be read in very strong sunlight or at night. Wireless radio connectivity is available as a communication channel between monitoring center and displays for screen's management and update.

Each display is accompanied by video cameras, enabling the traffic management situation centre to monitor traffic flows and record traffic violations. Smoke and temperature detectors help city officials to rapidly identify and respond to vehicle fires and provide highly localized weather information.

Akihiro Sakurai, Managing Director of NEC Neva Communications Systems, noted: "Ensuring the safety of drivers, pedestrians and cyclists by managing road traffic more efficiently remains one of the priority tasks for a contemporary major city. Involvement in the project was a great honour for us and enabled NEC to assert the company's status as an international leader in integrated IT solutions delivery".

Vyacheslav Smirnov, SITRONICS KASU Director General, added: "We applied state-of-the-art road traffic automation and safety solutions when implementing this important intelligent transport system project for the city. The timely provision of traffic information to drivers is one of the important tools for managing traffic flows and reducing the number of jams in our city."

The existing intelligent transport control system has already helped reduce congestion caused by traffic accidents and the number of traffic fatalities is down by 24% according to the Department of Transport and Road Infrastructure.
