When it comes to cat eyes, the first thing in your mind must be our cute pet, cat eyes, but when someone talks to you about cat eyes on the road, what do you think of? That's right, all I want to say today is the cats eyes road stud that shine on the road and guide us to drive safely.
Maybe many people have seen the cat eyes road stud, but they don't know what its name is. Let me show you today about the it!
The cats eyes road stud design originated in the UK in 1934 and is today used all over the world. The original form consisted of two pairs of reflective glass spheres set into a white rubber dome, mounted in a cast iron housing. This is the kind that marks the centre of the road, with one pair of cat's eyes showing in each direction. Cat eyes road stud can reflect the lights of vehicle headlights to guide people to drive safely in the dark.
But with the development of technology, this traditional cats eyes road stud is gradually replaced by solar cats eyes
，because the solar powered cats eyes can give drivers up to a 30 second reaction time as opposed to a 3.2 reaction time from conventional road studs. Drivers having ten times greater visibility can reduce accident rates up to 70%. This data has been proved by relevant experimenters.
The solar cats eyes road stud
is composed of a solar panel, LED, battery and housing. The solar panel on the top of the solar powered cats eyes absorbs solar energy during the day. This solar energy can be converted into electrical energy and stored in the battery. LED lights show the outline of the path and guide the driver's sight. LEDs in the solar cats eyes with an output distance > 100 Hz can be seen 900 meters away.
