The Smart Highway ~ An Intelligent & Interactive Highway

The Smart Highway ~ An Intelligent & Interactive Highway


This isn’t the first time we’ve featured highways with regards to the future, although it is a unique and greener approach. The ‘Smart Highway’ is an interactive and sustainable look at the roads of the future. Studio Roosegaarde a Dutch design firm working with Heijmans Infrastructure are developing these new designs and technologies for this ‘Route 66 of the future’ and should become reality around the middle of 2013 in the Netherlands.
A good reason to visit Amsterdam again.

New designs include the ‘Glow-in-the-Dark Road’, ‘Dynamic Paint’, ‘Interactive Light’, ‘Induction Priority Lane’ and ‘Wind Light’. The goal is to make roads which are more sustainable and interactive by using light, energy and road signs that automatically adapt to the traffic situation.
