A Traffic Light Augmented by Progress Bars


EKO traffic light

The Ecological and Economical Traffic Light Concept by Damjan Stankovic is a Red Dot Design 2009 Award winner and consists of a simple yet, potentially highly practical visualization concept for everyday traffic lights that could reduce pollution and promote safer driving. There might already be quite some traffic light time counters around today, but few focus on informing the car drivers in a physically integrative and visually glanceable way like this proposed design concept.

Eko Light is specifically designed so it can be easily installed onto existing traffic light systems without much effort. It claims to bring forward following benefits:

  • EKO traffic lightLess pollution, as drivers can turn their engines off and cut carbon emissions while waiting for the green light,
  • Less fuel consumption, as turning off vehicle engines lowers fuel consumption in the long run,
  • Less stress, since drivers know exactly how long to wait, and
  • Safer driving, as all traffic participants are fully aware of how much time they have left before the light changes, reducing the chance for potential traffic accidents.
