The United States currently has more than 31000 square miles of asphalt road exposed to the sun, if the asphalt roads are covered with solar panels if one mile road can produce enough energy for 80 homes. Not only that, on the road laying solar panels in a solar power generator will be able to LED power supply lanes on both sides of the road marking, allows the driver to travel to some key sections to achieve reminder, obviously compared to the traditional signs more eye-catching.
The future of electric cars will be more and more, and if you want to install charging piles to meet the energy needs of electric vehicles is not only a huge project, but also very cost resources. So if the electromagnetic circuit is integrated into a solar road, we can realize the inexhaustible power resources, so that the electric vehicle charging at any time. At present, the technology has entered the stage of looking for partners, will soon become a reality.
For intelligent highway, intelligent transportation system is a very important part, it can cope with the challenges of the future will face some traffic, such as strengthening the communication between the automatic driving car, reduce the occurrence of collision accidents. And if the integration of sensors and wireless communication devices in the road, you can enhance the stability of the communication between the car and the owner, to prevent the occurrence of traffic accidents, optimize traffic flow are very active. In the future on the future of smart roads, we can not only drive faster and more secure.
According to experts, the development of solar road was originally made by the United States, a Green Energy Corporation called the road of solar energy. They developed solar panels like floor tiles, with a length of 30 cm square. The cost of each solar panel is $7000, 7.6 degrees per day.
The solar panels can be laid on urban roads and sidewalks, and can be laid on the outskirts of the highway, the wire buried under the solar panels. After a solar panel laying, and high strength polymer transparent plastic plate laid on it. The solar panel is important part in the solar generator.
The transparency of these plastic panels is very high, so that the sun can be fully irradiated solar panels. The plastic sheets are very firm, and they are not very smooth, so they can ensure that the car is fast and not slippery. In the rainy day, the special structure can let the rain water quickly, but not because of the water and affect the car and pedestrian travel.
In addition, the road is also installed with a number of light-emitting diodes, can be on a cloudy day or night light from the road signs. The road there are some electric heating with solar heating in very cold, effective decicing or snow.
The idea of "solar energy" originally came from a girl named JulieBrusaw. Love fantasy of her sudden brain hole in 2006, she was thinking if the United States more than 75 thousand square kilometers of road all replaced by solar photovoltaic panels, so it is not only a lot of power to make a lot of!" As an engineer, her husband, ScottBrusaw, had been inspired by his wife's advice. He integrated many aspects of the information, began his own research and development plans. Not long after, one was named "SolarRoadway" of the occlusal hexagonal steel glass panel came out.
SolarRoadway, which is made of a hexagonal toughened glass panel with each other, is embedded with photovoltaic panels, which can be used for solar power generation, and the panels are mainly laid in the road and parking lots.
There are several layers below each of
the hexagonal tempered glass, and from top to bottom:
First floor, tempered glass
Second layer, LED luminous indicator layer
Third layer, circuit layer
The fourth layer, based on the basic level of recycled materials
The following is the flood and water layer
The advantage of this design is that the first is the solar power, needless to say, in short You'll see. throughout the United States as long as the completion of 1/3 pavement, can meet the electricity needs of the United States, at the same time can greatly reduce carbon emissions.
Finally, had to say that the "floor" is revolutionary! Because there are super durable glass on each floor, each photovoltaic plate with LED light, it will make the traffic information and instructions are displayed directly on the road; imagine driving down the pressure on the display of feeling bad. About the rain and snow weather, solar power storage device can be heated like a solar backup generator, the snow melting quickly, also worried that because of the heavy snow to travel?
It is reported that the U.S. Department of transportation is
planning to take the "Mother Road" 66 road upgrade for solar energy.
With the continuous development of the technology of car unmanned, the future, the construction of unmanned highway will be a trend, the application of smart sensors, will make intelligent highway more intelligent. China's highway construction enterprises must keep abreast of the development of the times, the development of machinery and equipment to meet the needs of the future road construction, in the smart road construction to play the greatest benefits.
