Shelter Way / public facilities

Shelter Way
Shelter Way

Shelter Way informs people about the direction of the nearest shelter and the disaster situation. People can watch Shelter Way in situation of a disaster and avoid quickly to nearby shelters, which can reduce casualties from disasters. Normally, Shelter Way functions as the original traffic lights. However, once the disaster occurred, the body with three lights, except for one with a red light, turns to a screen that shows the situation of the disaster. Red lights show the direction of the shelter with arrows to help people move to the nearest shelter.
