Client Application

This display is controlled live by any of the Ferry Captains directly from the bridge of their ferry, via their lap-top which is then linked to the sign by GSM Radio Modem.

The sign itself is located on a main highway on the approach road to Lerwick the main ferry port in Shetland, to advise passengers of any delays or alterations to the departure or arrival times of any of the three ferries that operate out of Lerwick.

Important changes to the ferry schedules are highlighted by Amber Flashing Beacons at top and bottom of the sign, in addition to the variable text lines, which advise of any changes and the reason behind schedule alterations.
