LIGHT ROAD / crossing systerm

LIGHT ROAD
LIGHT ROAD

Roadkill has become the biggest threat to leopard cats’ population. Because of specific features of the roads, drivers and leopard cats are not likely to notice each other at night. LIGHT ROAD can recognize cars and leopard cats and warn both of them beforehand. Because leopard cats are nocturnal animals and the environment of those roads are dim, light signs could work better. Furthermore, a laser bait is designed to lead leopard cats to passageways and culverts by using cats' habit of chasing laser points. Hopefully, this can grow their habit to use those safe crossing facilities and help them to adapt the new artificial landscapes.
