Glowing Lines on Smart Highway, road of the Future
Smart Highways are interactive and sustainable roads of tomorrow by designer Daan Roosegaarde and Heijmans Infrastructure. These lines on the side of the road collect energy during the day and give light in the evening.
” The first Smart Highway is Glowing Lines which are lines that charge at day-time, and glow at night for eight hours. Here the landscape becomes energy-neutral and a poetic experience. The first pilot of Glowing Lines has been realised at N329 in Oss (NL) and will be further launched international.”
Think about all the additions in safety, lower energy consumption (no streetlights) and of course the fun to drive on such a road.
