Smart traffic cone - dynamic detection and localization of traffic disruptions

Suddenly occurring disruptions on the road and especially at intersections — such as accidents, disabilities by vehicles and objects — may cause significant adverse effects on the traffic flow and in turn lead themselves to potentially dangerous situations. By using its integrated GNSS receiver and its mobile communication device the smart traffic cone provides timely and spatially accurate information about local disruptions in the road environment. It is a tool for police, rescue, recovery and service staff for detecting hazard areas that could not be detected so far.
