A pilot was conducted at four lane bituminous road stretch of Dwarka Sector 17, New Delhi to test the proof of concept level model of MV-I. To test at proof of concept level, Two pavements of MV-I, an ambient air filter, a reservoir and a compressed air energy generation unit were fabricated using specialized material, capable to compress 70 Liters of ambient air in one compression by vehicle.
-Generate enough data for scale-up and further commercial development of pavement, filtration system and power generation system,.
-Standardize the size and material for MV-I Pavement
-Successfully test the load bearing capacity of pavement
Ambient Air Pollution and Transformation of Conventional Road Infrastructure are the two most inevitable problems which need to be addressed as soon as possible as both the problems are directly associated with Human life. According to the facts regarding Ambient Air Pollution and road accidents due to poor road infra.
WHAT MAKES IT UNIQUE
-Purify Ambient Air Without Electricity,
-Provide pure air in bulk & clean electricity,
-Protect road surface from weather erosion & enhance road infra life,
-Improve riding quality & reduce fetal injuries during accident,
-Can install in existing road infra with minimum changes & civil construction,
HOW DOES IT WORK
MV-I have four basic components namely -
Air Compression Pavement:
It is ~50mm thick pavement which can be installed easily to replace surface course of any type of road. Once the surface course installed, it cover entire road surface and act as all weather proof shield which provide smooth riding quality with excellent friction coefficient.
Ambient Air Filter Columns:
These are air Purification Columns, installed at particular height above from the road surface in the form of road divider/traffic signal, etc.
Compressed Air Energy Generation System:
Installed underground connected with network of pipe collecting pure & compressed air to underground air reservoir which regulate pressure of clean air so that power can be generated through compressed air turbine before releasing clean air into environment.
MV-I Operation & monitoring System:
Embedded Technology based programmed control system for automated operation of MV-I system. The system also collect real-time data of traffic inflow, pavement performance efficiency, operation of air filter columns, blocking in any pipe network, performance of compressed air energy generation system, raise alarm in case of any malfunction, remind about maintenance/part replacement and analyze the collected data to insure proper functioning of MV-I
