We already spoke of intelligent roads in our blog, but this project takes the concept one step further. The idea is for solar panels designed specifically to replace the asphalt on roads.
These panels, made of highly resistant glass that can support the weight of cars, would not only save energy but could also store it. They are self-sufficient and capable of heating to melt snow in the winter, send light signals to vehicles thanks to their surface LED lights, light up the road and send surplus energy to cities.
The creator of this concept is electrical engineer Scott Brusaw, who has obtained more than two million dollars through the crowdfunding platform Indiegogo, in order to begin serious development of an idea that got started eight years ago.
