New Matrix Display Makes Its Debut
The West Bloomfield Police Department in Michigan was the first department to receive one of Decatur’s new OS300MX trailers. This trailer incorporates Decatur’s new Matrix Display which gives departments the ability to not only display traffic speed information but to also do messaging and graphics. With this new display departments can program the display to help oncoming vehicles understand not only the speed zone requirements but to also give warning messages like “slow down” or “Work Zone”. All of this without the need of a separate display. In addition the trailer can be used in pedestrian locations and can display graphics like the universal pedestrian crosswalk symbol. West Bloomfield also purchased 14 of Decatur’s Genesis II Select radar units to help with their in-car enforcement needs.
