Research and Design of a Road Cones Vehicle for Traffic Incident Disposal

With a high frequency of traffic incidents on the highways and urban freeways, it is urgent to make a response and dispatch the emergency vehicles as quickly as possible. The solution about how to isolate and protect the incident scenario becomes an issue. It means fast layout and recovery of road cones in a traffic incident scenario becomes an urgent problem. A research and design for a road cones vehicle is conducted then, it is used to handle the traffic incidents on site. The entire console was based on the pickup-car, the character of mobility for vehicle device is qualified and the console is installed into the carriage of the rear, and an electro-magnet mechanism is used to deliver road cones. At last, it is simulated by SolidWorks, and the console has received good recognition. The design of a road cones vehicle is targeted to be simple, efficient and reliable. It is able to be isolated quickly from the incident scenes to avoid harsh traffic jams, decrease traffic injuries, and it has played a key role that prevents the traffic situation from getting worse.
