What’s the idea?
Retractable spikes before the zebra crossing that come out when the traffic signal is red to prevent signal jumping by vehicles. Now wait till the traffic light gets green or risk getting your vehicle tyre punctured.
Losing a dear friend in an accident caused due to signal jumping by a truck made Shameet seriously think about this and to come up with a solution for the same. He likes playing table and foot ball in his free time. With great interest in computer programming, he wants to grow up and be a robotics engineer with specialization in artificial intelligence. He would then like to use his knowledge to reduce agricultural costs and bring more benefit to the farmers.
