After our community review in February, we were approached by Mr. John Van Winkle, a city traffic engineer in Chattanooga. He expressed interest in meeting with the InvenTeam and connecting us with what the city is looking for, giving a better opportunity for implementation after EurekaFest. This past week, he met with the InvenTeam along with a colleague and directed us towards a proposal to the Federal Highway Administration. Van Winkle has been a beneficial outlet to clarify and refine the details of our prototypes that would be necessary for patenting. It is so exciting that our invention could possibly be a reality in the streets of Chattanooga.
