On Thursday 13 June 2019, an award ceremony for innovation 2018-2019 was held in Otočec. L-Tek Electronics was also among the recipients, receiving a bronze award for innovation.
This year, L-Tek Electronics applied for GZDBK’s public tender for best innovations with the project Smart Traffic Sign for Increasing the Road Safety of Children. The project was developed in cooperation between the L-Tek Electronics company as a development-production partner and Cestel as a provider of road safety solutions.
The project is aimed to increase the safety of the most vulnerable participants in traffic – children.
The smart traffic sign’s function is to detect children in the vicinity of schools, bus stops and pedestrian crossings. This detection system is already being used as an established product of the Slovenian manufacturer CHIPOLO. The smart traffic sign thus detects a child/pedestrian and by flashing its lights alerts the driver of their presence.
The innovation can be seen in the vicinity of Novo mesto, on the section Gaber-Uršna Sela-Novo mesto. This section contains 9 such warning signs. Setting them up in other locations is currently in progress.
Congratulation to L-Tek for their amazing work.
