Solar Roadways (SR) intends to reinvent how the roads we drive, walk, and ride on are constructed and conceived. After ripping up the current framework of asphalt and concrete, Solar Roadways wants to replace it with highly-intelligent engineered solar panels that emit LED lights, all being powered by the sun. Loaded with microprocessors, these intelligent roadways will be able to light up after the sun sets to illuminate the road to prevent accidents as well as having the power to create lines and signs without any use of paint. Other features that can help prevent accidents is the roads ability to be able to produce heat, which would aid in the removal of snow of ice accumulation. The panels themselves are made out of a high-quality glass that can withhold the weight of trucks and has a surface traction similar to asphalt. The startup is still in its embryonic stages of development, so, as of right now, the company is working on driveways and parking lots, with roads and highways being its end goal.
