Alert eye / Warning system

Alert eye
Alert eye

When the floods occur in Taiwan, large number of underpass will be flooded in no time, biggest the problem of this is the driver cannot easily tell what depth of the water is. Therefore, the drivers often forced their way through, but most the time after they discovery flooding in too deep, by that time is to late often it causing property damage and sometime even death. The drivers do not know the depth of the water and strayed into it, causing them to drown. If the floods achieved the dangerous level, the “Alert eye” would spread its oil color to the water surface then to alarm the drivers.
