Visakhapatnam: A technology hazard warning system with embedded lighting system was introduced at the RK Beach here on Friday. According to 2015 data of research wing, 1,374 accidents and 400 deaths take place every day on Indian roads which further converts into 57 accidents and loss of 17 lives on an average every hour in the country.
As Visakhapatnam vehicle population is over 30 lakhs and pedestrian fatalities constitute 50 to 60 per cent of total fatalities. Among those 30 to 40 per cent of all reported road accidents occur on the National Highways.
Speaking to The Hans India, founder of Embedded Infra Tech Systems (EITS) Yellapu Ramakrishna said that this technology with high bright light strips embedded in specially designed rubber bumps are connected to signal system.
These are deployed for various traffic signaling purposes and helps the enforcement officials to ensure that the rules implemented are rightly adhered. CCTVs were installed as a part of the system which enables to capture non-conformists.
The zebra crossing and flash lighting strips were fixed with motion sensors on either side of the sharp bends on the highways for highly visible hazard warning and helps oncoming vehicles during heavy rains, dense fog and night times.
The unmanned intersections, the poles and the LED flashing lights operate in synchronisation to enable the driver maneuver the car safely across the roads and also the pedestrians cross roads safely by alerting amber and red lights at a distance of 50 metres from each other(depending upon the speed limits valid for the road) with red lights being installed next to zebra crossings on the road to minimise the chances of accidents caused due to negligence.
