Have A Safe Hump

No room for naughty thoughts here, but the explanation for a design simply called the “Safe Hump.” This is no ordinary speed breaker, the system within allows it to harness the mechanical energy (of cars passing over it) into electric energy so that it can power the LEDs. Two reasons why we would want this: 1) LEDs lined speed breakers at night are easily visible from a distance 2) The design of this hump is such that your car glides over it smoothly.

Operating principle:



  • The gear mechanism structure inside the hump facilitates electromagnetic transducer and converts mechanical energy into electric energy, thus supplying energy to the LED within the hump.

  • Better shock absorption by the car thanks to the gear mechanism structure and anti-pressure system. This prolongs the useful life of both the vehicles and humps.
