tell me more abt electronic flags to be used in singapore GP

The organizers of the Singapore Grand Prix will not only make history hosting F1's first-ever night race, it will also mark the introduction of electronic flag displays traditionally waved by marshals to communicate with drivers.

The flag signals, which have been an integral part of motor racing for over five decades, will be supplemented by electronic boards alongside the track. Using technology similar to units used to guide pilots at the runways of major airports, the 'DigiFlags' will display the different flag colours more effectively at the night race because of the brightness of the display boards.

The system, developed by Singapore GP-appointed lighting consultants Valerio Maioli S.p.A., is the result of more than a decade of development at the Barcelona, Imola and Monza racing circuits, in order to meet the stringent requirements of the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA) sporting code. The Singapore street circuit will mark the first-ever use of the DigiFlag technology in a Formula One™ event.

Thirty-five display panels will be situated around the track. Controlled by hand-held panels operated by officials at each marshals' post, they will complement the traditional flag signals. In addition, the race director will have an overview of the warnings being displayed around the entire circuit, allowing more centralised and more efficient communication of warnings to drivers.

The announcement of the new 'DigiFlag' technology follows a successful week-long demonstration of the lighting units that will make history when Singapore hosts the world's first night race on the Formula One calendar. A mock-up of sixteen lighting projectors was set-up for a week from 29 March 2008 on a 64-metre stretch of St Andrew's Road in front of the Padang, which in September will see the cars reaching up to 260 km/h.
