During emergency situation, Life-Light directional system leads people to safe shelters through balloons that inflate from streetlight poles. It will display the most efficient route in disaster situation to ensure we can safe as many people as we can. Usually in unexpected emergency system, vulnerable people are usually those with limited ability to respond quickly such as elderly people, disabled people, and foreigners who don’t know really know about the city area. Most of the time, all roads and telecommunication systems are down and emergency information are only available through normal channels, it would be really difficult to navigate to shelters which can lead to mass panic.
In the event of disaster, center service system can activate Life-Light directional system to alert everyone in the affected area. The system inflates balloons around streetlight poles to inform people about the fastest and efficient route they can take to get to the shelter. It works by flashing light on/off and emitting a sound alert. It features dual communication modes that allow both visual and hearing impaired people to understand the message. Equipped with smart technology, this directional system is able to update the route just in case if the route is blocked by a collapsed building and lead the people to the next closest shelter point.
