Off-grid digital out-of-home public information LCD screen technology with solar-assisted backlight

Project description

Innovative off-grid outdoor signage totems

Outdoor digital signage totems are spreading worldwide. However, the fact that they are dominated by LCD technology limits their rapid growth. Existing outdoor totems cannot operate in direct sunlight as they face the risk of liquid crystals of the LCD melting. Moreover, they are power consuming and have expensive grid connections and installation costs. The EU-funded SolarDOOH project proposes the world’s first off-grid digital signage totem that uses a photovoltaic system combined with a battery system. It is based on an innovative solar backlight technology using sunlight as a complementary light. The new technology reduces power consumption by half and will drive down total ownership, operating and maintenance, and installation and installation time costs. The innovative digital signage totems will be installed in smart bus shelters.
