Smart' road opens in the netherlands

A strip of "smart" road with glow-in-the-dark road markings has opened in the Holland to boost road safety.

Dutch designer Daan Roosegaarde undraped his sensible road back in late 2012, it appeared an formidable project. Designed as a way of each up road safety and environmental friendliness, it projected many options, including: dynamic, temperature-sensitive markings that might amendment to point weather conditions; glowing road markings; wind indication lights; and a lane embedded with induction coils to charge electrical cars as they drove over.

A 500-metre strip of the projected road has opened on the N329 in Oss, however the options are stripped all the way down to simply one: the glow-in-the-dark lane markings.

This is nothing, however, to be sniffed at. The markings themselves are very bright, due to a specially developed photoluminescent powder mixed with the road paint, and it stays bright for up to 10 hours when being charged with daylight throughout the day. it's significantly welcome within the European nation, wherever streetlights are turned off late at night so as to avoid wasting cash, resulting in dangerous driving conditions.

The road is undergoing a trial run, when that it'll open fully later this month. At that time, Roosegaarde hopes to draw in the interest of alternative road operators and governments to develop the project further
