Custom Application

ReTrans Digital Display

Six Feet Up deployed a custom digital signage application using an agile development process, with rapid prototyping and an ongoing back-and-forth feedback loop with  ReTrans.

The new system presents a variety of information in a multi-panel template with several rotating screens. Content includes both internal and external data, such as  fuel price from the Department of Energy, weather maps from the Weather Channel, news feeds from CNN, ReTrans' internal shipment information, etc.

The application is based on Dashing, an open source technology developed by Shopify. It uses a REST API, which makes it easy to pull data  from any Python applications developed by ReTrans, including the company's Django-based transportation management system.

Six Feet Up also took advantage of many prebuilt functionalities, including RSS feeds, a rotator widget, and Rickshaw, a Javascript helper for the D3 graphing library, that was used to generate beautiful charts using JSON coming directly from the company's database.

Eventually the digital signage system will be able to present specific data using different layouts depending on the geographic location of the  displays.
