Paving the Way to the Future
Deteriorating roads cause problems like increased car accidents, and cost motorists around the country 490 billions of dollars a year (U.S. Department of Transportation, 2016). The lack of a long-term solution hinders the overall success of the economy. However, current technology restrains the lifespan and the durability of roads, and is inadequate as a permanent solution.
NewFerro Roads, an advanced self-repairing road technology, will bring needed change to infrastructure, through low maintenance costs and high efficiency. NewFerro Roads will be cost-efficient in the long term by significantly reducing road maintenance by utilizing a phase-changing magnetic nanofluid, and preventing accidents by removing dangerous potholes and ice.
