Darkness Falls in Downtown Area
Statics shows that Canada was ranked second last for energy efficiency. The examination was done by a non-profit organization called the American Council Energy-Efficient Economy (ACEEE). In recent months, Windsor has suffered an increase in criminal harassment and assaults in the Downtown area. This is largely due to poorly lit areas where suspects tend to lurk. This discovery motivated our group to produce solar technology of traffic and street lights which can improve the safety and security of the public.
In addition, this inventive tool will help Windsor conserve and reduce energy consumption, as well as, costs. However, there is still a lot of research that must be done. Including, using a computer software that will produce 3D graphics of how this technology may look like and how it would work. This idea is currently being processed and evaluated for additional modifications to better the performance and outlook of this solar technology. If everything goes as planned, we will see a new ‘hip’ design of traffic and street lights that downtown Windsor has ever seen!

A New Perspective!
From a late start to begin a fresh new term, to meeting new class members from diverse programs, we slowly but surely merged into different groups mixed with new creative ideas, as well as, varying perspectives to fulfill one common goal: the development of a new proposals for the Downtown City of Windsor!

Given a list of projects to develop and the option to create and propose new ideas, our team quickly realized it was time to step foot outside the box and add a new proposal for this city. Consisting of two team members thus far, Wassim Ayache, a 3rd year student with an Electrical Engineering background combines forces with Sandy Chehade, a 4th year Sociology and Social Justice student, familiar with the law principals and procedures, to bring forth the propositional idea of solar-powered street and traffic lights.
This innovative concept is specifically and carefully designed to conserve energy, reduce cost, as well as enforce security and safety of pedestrians in areas where street lights are not available. Before any details are pushed into light, much research must be done to generate and design this device before it is fabricated, hence why this team is ready to get down and dirty this semester to fabricate and show off its new idea!
