Road marker system

Monday, 16 August, 2004 | Supplied by:

Safezone is a solar powered, flashing road marker system specifically designed to combat deaths and injury in and around 40 km/h school safety zones.

Safezone indicates exactly when school zones are active and there is a requirement to slow down.

The system's technology means that there is no wiring or major infrastructure required to install the system. Controlled wirelessly by SMS or a centralised computer, it is also possible for all school safety zone systems in the state to be activated by the RTA, individually by local authorities or programmed to be set and forget.

An encrypted command is sent to a control mast outside each school to activate markers within the individual zones. Schools using the system have a matrix of markers, placed 3-5 m apart on the centreline of the adjacent road so as to be visible to vehicles travelling in both directions.

Each marker contains four solar powered, superbright, red LEDs encased in a hardened glass dome embedded in a moulded plastic flange. They have a skid resistant top, height of 15 mm and footprint of 150 mm diameter.
