George T. Baker Aviation School InvenTeam

Miami, FL
Portable, Solar-charged Traffic Signal
  • In Miami, tropical storms and hurricanes often cause communities to lose electrical power for long periods of time, setting off accidents and causing unsafe roads.
  • The objective of the InvenTeam's device is to maintain traffic flow, thus allowing police officers to concentrate on other pressing issues instead of directing traffic.
  • The device is eight feet long when unfolded, weighs 60 pounds, and operates for three days per the battery's lifespan.
  • BP solar and R4 Systems provided supplies to the InvenTeam.
