Solar Roadways Panels, 2018

This is a Solar Roadways Panels. It was designed by Solar Roadways. It is dated 2018. Its medium is glass, circuit boards, solar cells, cables.

Solar Roadways is a modular system of solar panels that transforms street surfaces into smart, energy-generating infrastructure. LED lights create lines and signage without paint so that streets can easily change lane configurations to maximize traffic flow. Microprocessors allow the panels to communicate with each other and connected vehicles—by flashing messages to drivers alerting them to cyclists and vehicles they may not have seen, the panels could make streets safer for people using all modes of transportation.
