April, 29, 2014 the presentation of new information scoreboard was held in St. Petersburg. This boardcan help to get information about the arrival time of public transport.
The authors of invention declare thatinformation scoreboardscan workentirely bysolar energyeven in conditions of weather in St. Petersburg. This fact proves full energy independence of invention.
Currently there are no analogues of this development in the market. The project's uniqueness is not only in full energy independence, but in the fact that the installation does not require installation works for the provision of connections. All installation process includingsetting takes less than half an hour. It’s also important to note that the proposed solution is several times cheaper than ordinary led displays connected to the mains. Scoreboard can function regardless of the weather conditions of St. Petersburg, it’s designed for a long period of work",says Denis Nechaev, Development Director of the business incubator QD of ITMO University.
The first five scoreboards are already installed at bus stops near Metro station "Ploshchad Vosstaniya", on Nevsky and Ligovsky avenues and close to the junction of Kherson and Ispolkomskaya streets.
This project is implemented by the Urban Solutions on the basis of the ITMO University together with SPb GKU "Organizator Perevozok".
