"In 2013, 67,523 crashes were estimated to have occurred in work zones nationwide"
- U.S. DOT
Every year, thousands of incidents occur in work zones all in which could have been preventable. Our project's purpose is designed to alert drivers in a stronger way to protect the workers and other drivers.
We have designed a tower system in which better alerts the drivers using manual and auto flashing lights with various intensities depending on the weather. There will be two towers on each side of the road to maximize visability while remote controlled for flaggers to take action immediately.
-Solar powered to allow continual uninterrupted use
-Smart dual-powered lighting circuit to maximize battery life
-Battery continually reenergizes while capable of lasting over a full work day
-Designed under DOT regulations
-Plug-n-play for easy production, repair, set-up
