Subway Station Platform

In times of an emergency such as a fire alarm, people at the subway station tend to go into a panic and become chaotic. In such emergency situations, EXIT Braille Path show the way out by lighting arrows using the braille blocks towards the closest exit.
The arrows are slightly sunken in so that the blind can also perceive the way out safely in the chaotic environment where their hearing is greatly distracted.

1) When the lighting arrows operate, people know that it's an emergency situation.
2) Everyone can follow the arrow in an orderly fashion towards the exit quickly.
