iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016

iF PUBLIC VALUE STUDENT AWARD 2016

Right Way combines the functions of traffic signs with emergency routes in the city while being a general traffic sign during normal times.
When Right Way receives a tsunami warning, it will instantly switch to evacuation signs that guide people towards shelters. People will always know the latest status of the tsunami to facilitate making decisions on whether and where to seek shelter. (Keep running or flee into high buildings.) Right Way solves the problem of not being able to find shelter, and relieves people from fear and anxiety.

I believe in the saying: "Be true to your work, and your work will be true to you!" I keep this in my mind, and just do it. Thanks to the jury, and thanks to God!
