Viney Kumar, a student from Australia, has proposed an early warning system to ease the passage of Emergency Response Vehicles (ERVs) in traffic.
The inspiration for this project was “seeing an ambulance in India stuck in traffic.” The solution considers the audibility of sirens, lack of visual cues and noisy traffic-choked areas
The solution that was prototyped, built and tested, used an Android phone that communicates the ERV’s path to a server to notify other drivers to pull over.
The idea was proposed at the Google Science Fair 2013 worldwide online science competition.
Check out the video where he talks about the project and implementation.
