Abstract [en]

VMS can be used in a number of ways, for instance for information about speed, travel time, roadworks ahead, congestion, accidents, lane shift, weather, route guidance and events. During 2006-2009 a large number of studies regarding VMS have been completed, of which 61 are referred to in this report. Suggested areas of future research include graphic messages on VMS, legibility of VMS and information units.
