DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
X shape self return road cone

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Roadblock

INSPIRATION:
The existing road cone is very easy to be knocked down by people and vehicles to roll on a road during use. This will not only be likely to damage the road cone but also hinder the traffic order and affect the warning effect. Even though more weight is added to the base, such road cone will also be knocked down, causing more potential safety hazards. Thus, the road cone, which can stands up rapidly after being knocked down can alleviate this problem.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
This is a roadblock, which can stand up self return and rapidly. The road cone can self return to the upright state by virtue of the low center of gravity and outside curve of base when it tilts or is overturned. It is made of waste tire rubber powder. And it is easy to made, integrated molding. It not only improves the safety in traffic but also is easy to be transported because of its hollow structure.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Design a proper structure principle for the road cone, including the center of gravity place and arch shape base edge, so that the road cone can steadily stand on the road. It can stand up rapidly by virtue of its own center of gravity and arch once it was knocked down. With the hollow structure, many road cones can be overlapped for transportation.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
The project started in summer 2015 in Wenzhou, and finished in summer 2016 in Wenzhou.

FITS BEST INTO CATEGORY:
Vehicle, Mobility and Transportation Design

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
production:integrated molding materials:waste tire rubber powder

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
specifications: combinable product dimensions: 310mm*310mm*620mm package: without package technical: by mold

TAGS:

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
With the ordinary barrel structure, the road cones used in the existing road traffic are likely to be blown down by a strong wind. With reinforcement and weight added, they are also easy to be knocked down and need to be relocated by people after falling to the ground. This is very troublesome and even causes a life danger, especially at night. However, the self return reset road cone can improve this condition.

CHALLENGE:
It is rather difficult to find a proper center of gravity and it is also difficult to design a reasonable outside curve. Proper weight distribution and curve design can help the road cone to stand up rapidly after being knocked down. For this purpose, we have tried to make a lot of models.
