Roadside monitoring and communication devices are playing a greater role in improving traffic flow, which can help reduce fuel consumption. Wavetronix addresses this growing need with its Click! power and communication devices, as well as with sensors. Both boxes are often mounted on the same pole as the sensor, so enclosures need to be lightweight, as well as durable enough to survive harsh roadside environments. Non-metallic composite enclosures from Stahlin Non-Metallic Enclosures are highly corrosion-resistant and light enough for mounting on small poles.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
