Descripción /Description:

My project was created for people who have difficulty moving around big cities by themselves, either because of their age, or because they have some physical condition that makes it difficult for them to cross the streets or get on big cars, and even for those who need to cross with their children and do not have access to a pedestrian bridge.

PLATFORMS FOR A SAFE FUTURE are very innovative supports that are incorporated into the urban transport system. They are designed to provide safe and easy access help by preforming two essential mobilization functions. One of them rises from the ground and stabilizes so that the person who uses it can easily board a car or a bus. The other one separates from the sidewalk, crosses the street following a rail and joins the other sidewalk. Both are connected to traffic lights that stop traffic to prevent accidents.
