Class 8 student develops model to ease ambulance movement

Isn’t it disturbing to see ambulances getting stuck in traffic and struggling to move? Well, the ambulances getting stuck in the traffic jams may soon be a thing of past if the government agencies evince interest in implementing a miniature working model 'Automatic green signal for ambulance', developed by a Class 8 student of a city school.

The model, developed by Ankur Suresh, a student at Shree Ram Public School in the city, would enable the traffic signals turn green automatically on the arrival of ambulance.

Ankur Suresh, a resident of an apartment off Tumakuru Road, said the sight of ambulances getting stuck on the busy stretch was disturbing.

“I have seen ambulances getting stuck for long and the traffic personnel manually operating the signal to give way for the vehicle,” he said.

Explaining the model, Ankur Suresh said, “The model has a sensor, which senses the arrival of the vehicle and turns the signal green, clearing traffic and giving way for the vehicle.”

He hopes that the traffic and the Health department evince interest to adopt the model.
