CHK added another solar-powered product to its ConnectPoint digital product line called The SmartStop. This solar-powered totem combines an interactive tablet, like an iPad, with CHK’s Digital Bus Stop, which utilizes low-power E-Ink signage similar to that of a Kindle screen.
“Being able to deliver real-time information to digital signage that does not require electricity is very powerful and there are stats that suggest people would be more inclined to use public transit if real time information was presented to them at the stop,” Wood says. “The usage figures for our products are off the charts. They’re very popular. We’re very excited.”
