Intelligent Highway Safety Markers
November/December 2004 (vol. 19 no. 6)
pp. 8-11
Shane M. Farritor, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
Steve Goddard, University of Nebraska-Lincoln
A team at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln is developing automated highway safety devices. The devices replace the traditional base of the standard orange-and-white safety barrels with a mobile robot. The barrel robots can then self-deploy and self-retrieve, removing workers from this dangerous task. Other advantages include the abilities to reconfigure as the work zone changes and to continuously follow slowly moving highway maintenance operations. The team has developed several prototypes, and testing is underway in realistic highway environments.
