Even the Humble Parking sign can benefit from digital screen technology. Why is the parking sign so complex? Because there is a lot of information to be communicated, but it is not all needed at the same time making a dynamic display the ideal choice to clean it up and make it more legible and understandable.
User-centered information systems can improve the journey experience.
The way people are able to move around a city directly impacts their everyday experiences of it. And making the city more legible and easier to navigate can create major social, environmental, and economic benefits. That's the central concept behind City ID’s work on a new urban information system for Birmingham, UK, and other cities around the world.
