INTELLIGENT SEQUENTIAL WARNING AT WORK ZONE ENTRANCE … Every State and Provincial DOT aim is to provide Safe, Reliable Journeys and Informed Drivers. Maintaining a high quality road network and ensuring safety on that network is of paramount importance.
Reducing congestion and improving reliability of the network inevitably involves road maintenance and improvement projects. This work often requires Work Zones to be formed and safety for workers improving the network for all users is key. The cones/barricades at the beginning of a work zone referred to as the taper are the first line of defence for the construction worker and are frequently struck by vehicles that have failed to see them or have not exited the closed lane in sufficient time.
Statistical evidence shows that this occurrence of taper collision accounts for over 50% of near miss incidents in the workzone and can lead to accidents which not only affect the construction workers , but can injure members of the public and cause highway congestion and secondary incidents.
The SynchroGUIDE lamp series was designed to be a simply deployed tool which would not only dynamically enhance the visibility of the work zone entrance as in the case of static lamps but at the same time improve driver lane discipline by providing a directional guide.
The SynchroGUIDE product combines the latest in LED lamp and lens technology with intelligent synchronisation wireless communications technology to enable cone taper deployment lengths of up to 250 synchronised lamps. For more info on independent field trials see case study section of this site.
With three construction zone workers killed each day in North America alone can you afford not to provide your workers with the best safety technology can provide. The Dorman SynchroGUIDE was originally developed to meet Chapter 8 of the DfT / Highways Agency Traffic Signs Manual in support of UK Traffic Management company's requirements for a high intensity lamp with self-synchronising technology to enable the guiding wave of light to direct drivers at a change in delineation. Over 50000 units were sold during 2006 after the publication of the Transport Research Laboratory field trial results and the field performance of the product has further enhanced its reputation and established the product as a must for the safest of work zones.
