Rather than install separate poles for traffic lights, why not put them on existing ones and/or trees? That’s the idea behind this clever design by Gisung Han, Hwanju Jeon and Jaemin Lee. Basically, it “comes in two parts: a flexible LED belt that wraps around street furniture and a solar lid which protects it, shades it and powers it.”
Imagine using a flexible LED solar panel as traffic signal! The idea is awesome. It can be installed on any existing circular base like a tree or a utility pole. So there you have a tree that’s a prime spot for a pedestrian signal, and here is this flexi strip waiting to be coiled around the tree! Easy urban and rural installation.
