Innovative LED-wall to function as a digital ‘Speaker’s Corner’
Enhancing the city’s livability through interactions with the various dedicated public spaces, including an interactive exhibition light wall.
Egedal Municipality plans to establish a new developed PV-diode screen on a central location at the new dense urban development in Egedal City. The innovative PV-diode screen is delivered by Racell and functions as an ordinary PV (solar cells) module in the daytime. The collected electricity will be stored in a battery, which will supply the diode screen in the night. A local coffee sale will supply the energy. The screen will be established at the Egedal S-station just under the tracks for the railways.
The programmable screen is planned to function with different kinds of graphic content. As text marquee it will show non- commercial messages from the municipality and traffic information from DSB. In specific periods the screen can show artistic adapted graphic or function as a digital “speakers corner”programmed by citizens. To avoid “overload” and light pollution this will have its own timing. During special events music instruments can control the screen and display the “picture side” of a track performed by Egedal Music School or a local band.
What the project aims to solve
The project is expected to make the new Egedal City more visible, since the activity in the area by now is partly hidden behind the S-station. Promotion of collective transport is also an issue. The solution will give a “lift” to the S-train station, which also could result in more passengers as an alternative to private motoring. In this perspective the project is a “step one” in a process to identify further opportunities in the relation between the S-station and the new Egedal City.
Installation and initiation is expected during Spring 2018.
