The inventor, Marcolino Kanganjo – professor of Electronic Projects and Systems at the Higher Polytechnic Institute of the José Eduardo dos Santos University, in Huambo – said he felt good and encouraged, stressing that the project was "a version of a mobile traffic light, but which also has a project for conventional traffic lights".
"I feel good, that encourages me, because after all, the ultimate goal of knowledge is the technical application and resolution of community problems, so I feel good. It should be noted that the project is a version of a mobile traffic light, but which also has a project for conventional traffic lights", said the inventor, in an interview with the Public Television of Angola (TPA).
The official said that they are still open to partnerships, in the sense of starting to produce traffic lights and, consequently, reducing costs with the importation of this type of equipment. "We are open, we want a partnership so that we can start manufacturing traffic lights and reduce the cost of importing them," he said.
The device also seems to have pleased the drivers who passed through the area where the traffic light was implemented.
This is the case of a female driver, who, speaking to TPA, said it was a "very good" initiative and should be supported. "It's a very good initiative, since lately the power in our city has been failing a lot and the traffic lights have been almost always off, so I think it's a good initiative that we should support", she said.
Another citizen said that the device "helps society and not only to avoid accidents".
It should be noted that Marcolino Kanganjo is not new to the world of inventions: on two occasions the inventor was in Germany representing the colors of the country, with the invention of a self-sustainable ecological generator, whose project allowed him to win several medals, according to the TPA.
