Safehump

Design Background:
1.Numerous vehicles run over road humps every day, which means large amounts of energy are wasted.
2.Road humps can not be noticed easily by drivers at night due to the weak light of reflective stripe. This may hurt automobile chassis as a result of fierce shock.
3.Cyclists are difficult to notice reflective stripes at night.

Design features:
"Safe hump" converts mechanical energy into electric energy, which enlightens the LED inside the hump. This warns drivers slow down and pay attention to road safety. Moreover, shock absorption of the structure is able to reduce concussion of automobile chassis.
