Mobility / Transport / Logistics



Pavnext has developed and patented a solution to promote road safety and produce clean energy in the urban environment in a disruptive way. The NEXT-Road is a technological device to implement in the road pavement, that harvests kinetic energy from vehicles, allowing to reduce their speed without requiring any driver action. When implemented before crosswalks, this solution is able to increase the safety level of the crosswalk by, at least, 70%. The energy harvested from vehicles is then converted into electric energy with a very high efficiency, which is then stored outside the pavement, and used to power multiple electric applications – both signalling and other road safety devices, as well as to power electric mobility, promoting sustainable cities. This solution also monitors traffic and energy data, presenting it to municipalities through an application developed by Pavnext, promoting Smart Cities. The solution was implemented and tested in the city of Matosinhos, Portugal.
