DAYLIGHT CONVERTER
©driendl*architects 2008

To transfer the transition of daylight luminance (100.000 lux) to standard tunnel lighting to the tunnel entrance area

Over a distance of approximately 140 m (3-5 sec at 100/150 km/h) daylight is gradually converted into tunnel lighting by using a shading system with decreasing translucency towards the exit (no maintenance cost).

ZERO EMISSION TUNNEL

The shading system consists of solar panels which also generate the required energy for tunnel lighting.

BENEFITS / SUSTAINABILITY:

ENERGY SAVING WHILE IN SERVICE WHILE

ACCIDENT RISK REDUCTION WITHIN THE ENTRANCE AND EXIT AREA

BETTER ADAPTION DUE TO GRADUAL TRANSITION OF BRIGHT DAYLIGHT TO TUNNEL LIGHTING
