LED Pylons say goodbye to the “orange plastic cones”
One can appreciate how a concept like this LED pylon could actually be immediately adopted by construction companies and city councils everywhere. What we have here is a green design for a compact safety cone that is far more noticeable in all conditions than any orange cone most have seen before.
Conceived by Yuhui Wang and team, the apparatus consists of an organic plastic base that’s roughly the length and width of your typical pylon. Designed to have more of a height, the Dynamic Traffic Cone integrates solar panels that power the system of bright red LED lights. The cone itself coils compactly into the base for easy storage and flexible use, and its center can simply be withdrawn to form the tall pointed shape that can be seen by distant drivers.
