As a result of the terrain in Taiwan, the transportation development varies by region, and compared to urban areas, rural areas face inconvenient mass transit conditions.

In order to solve this problem, III created Taiwan’s first “smart manually-powered station sign,” which only takes 8 seconds to display were a bus is currently being driven so that passengers can assess waiting times.

The result is achieved through the adoption of Low-Power Wide-Area Networks (LPWAN) wireless communications, which feature wide coverage, low power consumption, high penetration and other characteristics. The technology avoids the dead ends of 3G/4G communications and is especially suitable for rural mountainous areas in Taiwan.

Furthermore, the stations utilize a manual power generation mode so that the smart station signs are not limited by power restrictions. Even in non-urban areas or in remote mountainous areas it can be used in places lacking in power resources and makes it more convenient for people who are waiting for vehicles.
