eSAS – electronic Speed Awareness Sign

Patent ID: 2020100193

SPEED is the number one risk on any road work sites.   Arrowes’ electronic Speed Awareness Sign (eSAS) has been designed with for the single reason :  To reduce speed of motorists on the approach to job sites.  The eSAS is the most effective solution for reducing speed, making project sites safer for your frontline workers.

The eSAS is yet another innovation that Arrowes is proud to introduce to improve roading safety.  Arrowes took the much desired features of the eSTOP, making vehicle activated signs “VAS” or “SAM” that Australians are so familiar with; portable, easy to use and even more functional – not only is it a very powerful driver interaction tool, but it also collects traffic data.

The eSAS’ could be a game changer for you, let us tell you how!

We all want to do the right thing, but sometimes we just need a little reminder.  The eSAS’ is designed to be implemented on the approach to a worksite, responding to driver speed and providing live feedback.  It encourages drivers to abide by speed reductions and ensures that they are compliant to speed restrictions well before they each your work site.

An independent trial by Downer conducted across Australia in 2019 demonstrated that the eSAS improved speed compliance by 24%.  It was proven to be more effective than any other solution in speed reduction compliant.

Standard
The eSAS Standard is the lightest version of the eSAS family with a 7 kg display head.

Display area: 320 mm x 320 mm.

B-Size
The B-Size eSAS has been developed for high-speed road and is larger than the eSAS Standard, with a 13.8 Kg display head.
Display area: 430 mm x 430 mm.

Given the larger display space, the battery life is slightly reduced to 15 hrs, while wind loading under the same sand backloading conditions of 50kg; each leg is only reduced to 100 KPH.

Double
The eSAS Double was developed to support single lane, two way traffic locations. All display functions are mirrored and embedded into one display head. All remaining functions are 100% alike to  the eSAS Standard.

Given the need to power 2 display heads, the battery life is expected at 14hrs; while the total display head weights 13 kg.
