The aim of the E-Signage Demo project is to explore the market potential and prepare the market launch of a widely usable outdoor electronic signage and message board (OEMB) display module based on a fundamentally new display technology in combination with transparent electrode front-plane layers. As an example, the OEMB display module can integrated into OEMB device that consists of a display module, power supply i.e. a solar cell system, GPRS modules, software, and is used for transmitting visual information. The demo-project draws on the outcomes of a successful FP7 project E-SIGNAGE (Nov. 2011- April 2013) where the partners developed a low-cost, durable, high brightness and contrast level, energy efficient (bi-stable; no backlight needed), high information content two colour electronic outdoor message board device that is able to receive data via GSM communication and uses solar energy as a power source. However, usage possibilities of the display module that was developed as a part of the OEMB device under E-SIGNAGE are not limited with the original OEMB device structure. Therefore in order to have a wider applications possibility and through this a wider impact on the SME participants / overall market, current project partners are focusing on exploring its extended market potential. This exploration will be followed up by viability verification and market launch preparation activities for reducing the gap between the OEMB display module developed by E-SIGNAGE and the market.

The general objective of the Electronic paper message board for outdoor use with carbon NanoBud display module and GPRS I/O layer (E-SIGNAGE) project is to develop a large area, low-cost, high brightness and contrast level, robust, energy efficient (bi-stable; no backlight needed), high information content two-colour electronic outdoor message board that is able to receive data via GSM communication and uses solar energy as a power source. Twist-ball e-paper material developed by Invent Research O (coordinator; SME, Estonia) has the principle capabilities to meet all the quality requirements set by the end-users for active front-plane layers of outdoor electronic signage and message boards (OEMBs). It is potentially highly robust and flexible, has high bi-stability, wide operating temperatures and low production costs. In addition the material is video capable that widens the usage areas of OEMBs. Carbon nanomaterials (Carbon nanotubes and NanoBuds) developed by Canatu (partner; SME, Finland) have the principle capabilities to meet all the quality requirement set by end-users for the transparent electrode front-plane layers and thin film transistor backplane layers of OEMBs. Canatus nanocarbon films are highly robust and flexible, have high carrier mobility, on-off ratios and exceptional optical properties such as high transparency, colour neutrality and excellent index matching. Moreover, Canatus Direct Dry Printing technology allows low cost, high volume production. Further development of Invent Researchs and Canatus materials in combination with the existing OEMB components will enable the partners of the proposal to develop autonomous and good picture quality OEMB applications. It would be necessary to develop the quality characteristics (brightness and contrast level, resolution, stability in time and in UV light) of the e-paper material (front-plane) for using in OEMBs; develop carbon nanomaterials based front-plane electrodes and backplane transistors; integrate the front-planes/backplanes with other OEMB components; and develop the necessary software.
