NUFER Associates Intelligent Transport Systems
A major focus of Nufer Associates efforts is in the area of Collision Avoidance for bridges and tunnels.
Suspended metal cylinders such as shown here are old technology and do nothing to stop the impact. What everyone has failed to realise is that it is too late once the truck has collided wih the tunnel or bridge
