What has been the effect of the activities?
Regulation over the use of the new V16 Road Safety beacon ,instead of road safety triangles, has now been approved by Motor For Transport Department from Spain (DGT) and will take effect next 1st July 2022. Thanks to PF LED ONE V16 more than 24 million drivers and bikers from Spain will be visible and protected whilst on the road. The need of stepping out of the vehicle to place road safety triangles on the tarmac when driver has suffered an accident or vehicle has broken down will be eliminated. PF LED ONE will reduce the risk of people being run over or hit by any incoming vehicle. We expect to drastically reduce road crashes, injuries and deaths. As a complement, and in order to improve road safety even more, our second development PF CONE will allow authorities to have instant information over road accidents, road checks, police controls, protect road maintenance workers and obtain information related to "how natural disasters are progressing or disappearing".
Please briefly explain why your initiative is a good example of improving road safety.
PF LED ONE and PF CONE are two great solutions that improve road safety and make a huge contribution to society. PF LED ONE provides information to Motor for Transport Department over "place of an accident", allowing DGT (Motor for Transport) to take action, reduce "response time" and inform other drivers about "accidents ahead" (using information panels situated on highways.) Thanks to the new V16 connected road safety beacon the risk for drivers to being run over after an accident or breakdown, is NIL.
PF CONE, the one and only CONNECTED CONE in the world. Another great solution for Governments, Fire or Rescue Teams, or national entities that wish to geolocate certain areas, hazards or events.
