Tragic traffic

Car commute awareness


With the new controversial lights on the Champlain Bridge, we wish to develop a motion detector that will be able to count the number of cars that pass everyday and have the ability to change the colour of the lights on the bridge in order to represent the damage cars cause to the city of Montreal and the Saint-Lawrence river. We also want to install electronic signs that would tell drivers how many cars have passed on the bridge since the beginning of the day, the amount of fuel consumed by cars along with the amount of CO2 produced by cars.
