The project aims to decrease the emergency risks by providing an innovative utilization for raised pavement markers
l 5 Weeks
Unregulated construction and development have turned Tehran, a city of 14 million, (and any other major cities) into one of the world’s worst places for traffic jams. This has resulted in pollution, and other problems such as late arrivals, especially for ambulances, fire trucks, and police cars during emergencies, resulting in thousands of deaths, injuries, and damages.
In essence, raised pavement markers are used to improve driving safety by delineating road edges and centerlines. However, by the advancement of technology, the simple plastic studs have become reflective, hosting lights and just recently, solar and smart. This development brought new applications to these products.
Path of Life
Like other smart studs, the main components are a solar panel for powering the system, LED lights, and a transmitter/receiver.
The last component activates the system by the commands received from the emergency department or starts automatically with the proximity of emergency vehicles.
