Featured Business- RoadSpan Systems, LLC
Awarded "Best of Show" at this year's West Virginia Makes Festival, The RoadSpan system consists of an intelligent network of wireless transponders for school buses and signal lights for bus stops. Roadspan equipped signal flashers are positioned at the bus stop, at an obstruction that keeps motorists from seeing the bus stop (like at the top of a blind hill or apex of a sharp curve), and then beyond the obstruction. When the school bus activates its lights for a stop, the transponder transmits a signal to the flashers to activate. Approaching motorists can see the flashing signal and start slowing down long before they see the school bus.
