Singara Chennai seems to be the busiest city during the peak hours, and that too during the Friday evenings, crossing the Koyambedu and OMR junction becomes one challenging task. Here is where the superhuman traffic cop come into play in managing the traffic under the burning sun and even late nights tirelessly. Does it looks exhausting??
Obviously YES!! In order to make the process ease to the traffic police, students from SP Robotics Maker Lab - Chennai developed Roadeo - The Traffic Bot and gifted it to the Chennai city. Know what? this Roadeo has the facility to publicize social news on the LED display for creating traffic awareness among the people.
1. Can you guys explain why you have developed Roadeo - The Traffic Bot?
2. How do you feel being the part of this celebration?
3. What impact will the Roadeo - The Traffic Bot will do to the society?
We used to wait for the RED signal. Even then we had to rush to the zebra crossing and still, need to hold each other hand to cross the road. We hope our Roadeo - The Traffic Bot will give the students the confidence in crossing the road without any fear. Roadeo will move towards the road and show the STOP sign, thus alerting the people in releasing the break in their vehicle. We can control Roadeo manually through Blue-tooth app. We are also working on upgrading the image processing in autonomous mode.
