Smart road dream using solar panels instead of asphalt is real

The smart road dream using solar panels instead of asphalt is real: The Solar Roadways project started at the beginning of 2000 in the garages of Scott and Julie Brosaw, with the dream of replacing the asphalt roads of America with solar panels. After nearly 10 years of work in the garage where the couple turned into an electronic lab, Solar Roadways has become a project that attracted many agencies from Google to NASA.
In order to find the necessary funds for the realization of the 21 Indiegogo campaign, which started in April, the 1 million dollars reached its target early on. Solar Roadways, which has so far collected about 1 million 400 thousand dollars, will be able to go into production process after a few improvements.
Starting with the idea of ​​producing a very strong material that works with solar energy and can accommodate sensitive electronic circuits, Solar Roadways is a combination of many hexagonal smart panels. Panels made of special glass, which can carry trucks with a weight of 125 tons on the outside, are able to prevent damage to internal solar cells and microprocessors. The microprocessors inside Solar Roadways are designed to control LED illuminations, read load cells and provide two-way communication.
One of the most important features of the en smart roads biri marked by the 128 LED illumination on each panel is to see electric cars as a solution to the power problem. However, it can support driverless automobiles (like Google unmanned cars today). Thanks to the panels with heating feature, the roads are covered with snow. Smart roads can be adapted to parking spots, sidewalks and many more.
It is stated that smart roads meet the costs for generating electricity from solar energy and can even provide energy to houses, parking points and workplaces connected by smart ways.
Scott and the Julie Brosaw couple worked with recycling experts for the prototype they produced and used as much recycling material as possible. The couple, who grew up in the 1960s and said that one of the few things that have remained unchanged since then, is targeting America first to change.
This technology, which can pave the way for the sustainability and use of renewable energy sources in daily life, is very important in terms of showing that the big problems of the future can be solved with the technologies that a few people are developing instead of waiting for the state.
