Wind-Guardian / Wind-powered road pile


When the car passes by our side,we can feel a gust of wind,so why wouldn’t we utilize the wind energy?We design the wind-powered bike lane—road piles placed between motor vehicle lane and bike lane,by doing this,the wind power generated from vehicle movement can be transformed into electrical energy.The collected energy makes the light turn into green automatically in the night to remind riders to take security precautions and give a reminder to the driver on passing vehicles that bike lane is around them,thus providing security safeguard for bicycle riders.
