Abstract:
    Designing a speed bump using a non-Newtonian fluid that is both cost-effective and significantly increases the level of convenience for the road users.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Our society is gradually shifting towards more convenient solutions. Conventional speed bumps are not quite convenient for the road users. Thus, our proposed speed bumps will enhance the convenience of the road users.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   We will be targeting a global audience as convenience is an utmost requirement for almost everyone. All road users, along with the investors for road projects, will benefit from our product.
How will the solution works
    Unlike conventional speed bumps, we will use non-Newtonian fluids in our speed bump. A non-Newtonian fluid is a fluid whose viscosity is variable based on applied stress or force. So when a vehicle passes slowly over the proposed speed bump, it wouldn't experience any jerk as the fluid will act as a liquid. However, if a fast-moving vehicle passes the proposed speed bump, it will experience a jerk as the non-Newtonian fluid will act as a solid in this scenario.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Currently, we don't have any competitors in the market. Our solution is unique as this technology has never been used before in Pakistan.
