The project objective is to design, build and test a road tunnel barrier prototype. The barrier will ensure a more efficient closure of the road tunnel in case of emergncy situation as compared to state-of-the-art systems. The system efficiency will be evaluated by testing and the conformity with technical standards will be documented. The operation procedure based on risk analysis will be applied. The main goal is to increase progressive technologies knowledge to improve road traffic safety in tunnels and to apply composites in traffic. The gained knowledge will result in improved performance of Technofiber (TF) and Feramat Cybernetics (FC), in increased safety of road tunnels and in decreased economic losses caused by accidents and long slow detours. The work will be focused on interdisciplinary solution, complex approach, increasing project work efficiency, speeding up results transfer to production and their application. The project conception aims to increasing collaboration among TC, FC and University of West Bohemia (UWB).
