Syncromatics’ solar-powered signs bring smart transit information directly to the rider at the bus or shuttle stop. The use of solar power reduces the need for costly infrastructure to deliver electricity to a sign site.

Autodesk’s ‘Inventor’ software allows Syncromatics to create a single digital model with the ability to explore design, visualize use, and simulate function before they are built, reducing the need for physical prototypes.

Syncromatics received Autodesk’s ‘Inventor of the Month,’ recognition for June 2009. Stats for Eco Smart Transit Signs Trending: Older & Average
