The “Disability Crosswalk” is a system that is a universal design used to help all users cross the street safely. With specifically the visually impaired in mind, the crosswalk system is activated by a pressure pad which is stood on. After activation, the crosswalk system uses a speed detection device linked to a translator in order to verbally tell the user what the speed of an approaching vehicle is. It also gives a visual number reading of the speed. When a vehicle is stopped or absent, the crosswalk will state the street is safe to cross. There is a rubber rail system which can also be utilized to help the visually impaired cross the street safely and directly. There should be two individual speed reading/warning units across the street from each other, with a rubber rail in between to create one full system.
In addition to the verbal warning to the pedestrian, there is a LED panel on the back side of the crosswalk system which warns drivers that there is a pedestrian trying to cross the road.
Core Patient Recovery Vest has been designed to enable first responders to perform triage. Triage is a step of determining priority of patient’s treatments based on the severity of their conditions, it helps prevent medical shock in patients during mass casualty incidents such as natural disasters or train crashes. In a mass casualty accident, such as a train crash, rescue is only the first step. Paramedics have only 30 seconds per patient to check their vitals and establish triage priority, stabilize them if possible, and attempt to determine their name and basic background information.
Even at this rate, rescue team might take hours before they can reach the victims and give them proper treatment. During this time, victims can feel panicked and distressed thus affecting their vital signs and they may suffer from shock, worsening injuries. This concept recovery vest is designed to reduce paramedics’ workload by performing automated triage and rapid treatment. This medical technology replaces the inefficient and out-dated triage practice with modern solution that will dramatically increase the speed and efficiency of diagnosis as well as improve patient care.
The Nissan V2G concept vehicle has been designed to adopt with the electrified and ultra-efficient network of the nation’s highways called the ‘GRID’ for the year 2030. This car comprises a dynamic, low cost and quality construction V2G electric engine that is being expected to be the best selling vehicle of that time. The creative young minds of LA’s legendary automotive culture are highly potential considering its simple and user-friendly EV architecture. The organic shape along with great functionality is the key features that will keep the vehicle user segment intact.
Text from the website:
In the spirit of LA’s legendary automotive counter-culture, creative young minds see untapped potential in the V2G. Taking advantage of the simple and user friendly EV architecture, they quickly hack the V2G, take it ‘OFF-GRID’ and begin to explore the virtually endless opportunities of this newly created vehicle segment. The V2G is born.
