Autoalarm Guardrail / Smart highway guardrail

Autoalarm Guardrail
Autoalarm Guardrail

Autoalarm Guardrail is a smart guardrail with auto alarm system and caution light. On roads in sparsely populated, low visibility and dangerous places, once a car crashes into the guardrail, the caution light of the guardrail would switch on to warn the approaching vehicles. It aims to help people in traffic accidents, especially when no one else around. By giving ample warning, a potential second accident can be avoided.
Because of the open circuit, the broken guardrail would automatically transmit the signal to the nearest police station and hospital. Moreover, the inner GPS device would report the specific location to the rescue team
