SOFT STOP – Safety barrier for a traffic closure in road tunnels

Realization: 2014–17

Feramat Cybernetics is together with the University of West Bohemia and Technofiber company involved in research project SOFT STOP, which is supported by a grant of The Technology Agency of the Czech Republic in program Alfa (project TA04031111). The main goal of the project is to design, built and test innovative traffic barrier prototype, which is able to safely and effectively control or stop a traffic in highway and city tunnels. This barrier should supplement or replace traditional systems (e.g. classical mechanical barrier). Feramat Cybernetics is responsible for a development of a control and communication system and preparation of operational and risk analyses.
