"Smart" roads

Road surfaces are now a multifunctional complex, which serve to complete a number of tasks. The use of nano-additives from waste tires makes the paving more secure, environmentally friendly, durable, and therefore economical.

Lighting systems, which turn on only when a moving vehicle is detected, as well as fluorescent glow-in-the-dark road markings, accumulating solar energy during the day, will significantly reduce electricity costs and, at the same time, improve road safety.

With built-in auto induction lanes, it will be possible to charge the car during the ride, and special sensors will inform drivers about the climatic conditions of the area and the state of the road surface.
