The digital canopy is the new addition to the world of technology by the students of England. The canopy refers to the e-paper which is attached to the roof of the subway trains helping people sitting inside the train to have a look of the outside world.
The British students came up with idea of digital canopy. The electrophoretic paper is used in this device. This paper is used for displaying and hence is the best option. The device is used to display the landmarks which come during the course of the journey through as subway train. This way, the passengers in the train feel more refreshed and also get attracted towards such a display owing to the new technology which is used in it. It is good source of relief from the daily tensions and turmoil which one suffers due to his office or some other reasons. Not only this, this digital canopy is used for various other functions as well. Most of the companies in England are using this canopy as a great source of promoting their products. Most of the companies are displaying their advertisements through this display canopy. Hence, in a way they are able to advertise inside the subway train too. The inclusion of these display canopies inside the subways trains has increased the level of curiosity among the passengers who are always willing to take a subway train instead of other source of transportation.
The working of this digital canopy is quite simple. The content is already stored inside an embedded system in a computer. Now when the train passes through a certain monumental landmark, the content is displayed through WI-FI. This way as the train passes through different landmarks, they are displayed accordingly. Meanwhile when the train is in between two landmarks, then the advertisements are displayed on this screen. Different subway trains in England have different matter stored in their embedded systems depending on the route which they follow and the landmarks which would come on the way. Hence, it is advisable that different countries should adopt this new way of technology in order to give to their citizen one more reason to smile.
