Abstract
Derek Morgan of Rank Precision Industries presented a paper to the SPIE meeting last year on Traffic Engineering. This paper reports on advances in the technology since that time. Review of Previous State of the Art. A. We use glass fiber optic bundles that will withstand the high temp-eratures of high intensity light sources. B. Fiber optic bundles are produced in the form of a harness; 1 input, up to 250 output tails. C. Arranging the output tails in a pegboard allows fixed messages to be brightly displayed as dots of light.
