Management for the Future"
We wanted to
help our community and noticed that at least once a day we hear
sirens going towards a car accident. Many of these accidents were caused by
distracted drivers who did not stop for the red light at the intersection,
known as red runners.
We designed a new technology to manage
traffic in our streets. A system that will save lives and prevent people
from getting hurt in car accidents (we know a person that got badly injured
because of a red runner).
Drivers run through the red lights for many
- Distracted (texting)
- Foggy days (the traffic light can't be
seen until 10 feet from an intersection).
- Sunrise or sunset blinding the driver.
- Power outages in bad weather.
- Snow (LEDs can't melt snow)
