Any vehicle can become a hybrid vehicle (internal combustion-electric) if we replace the rear wheels. Thanks to the metallic asphalt H.E.R.A., it is possible to power these electric wheels with hexagonal modules on the road during motion in urban centers.
Getting around by car in urban centers is one of the least comfortable for various reasons: traffic, bad asphalt conditions, high environmental and noise pollution etc. All vehicles need to carry on board their fuel (tank, cylinder, batteries) wasting a part of the total stored energy during motion. The presently used internal combustion engines use more fuel at the lower gears, making urban circulation the most expensive energetically. All these problems pushed me to find a solution easily adaptable for all types of roads and for any vehicle. Consequently, I developed H.E.R.A, a completely new road concept.
H.E.R.A. is an electrically powered metallic modular road surface that is able to reduce pollution in urban centers by 90%, noise pollution by 70%, asphalt maintenance by 98% and it converts all vehicles in hybrid vehicles (internal combustion-electric), eliminating batteries on board for good. H.E.R.A. is made exclusively from recycled materials and it is compatible with all road types. When temperature drops below 0° C, an heating system gets activated to melt snow and ice. If it rains, water does not accumulate, it passes through the grids and the draining edges. Road safety increases by 30% as H.E.R.A. can turn off or limit the power supply nearby pedestrian crossings, schools and playgrounds.
H.E.R.A. is made exclusively from recycled materials and it is compatible with all road types. Hexagons are realized by iron materials from scrapped cars, while insulating materials are from old tires. Compared to other solutions, H.e.r.a. encloses in one concept all solutions to urban problems.
