Team 59, From the Wilds - This year's solution had to relate to making transportation better. We decided to focus on decreasing the number of deer-related car crashes by designing a deer sign with special capabilities. It would be able to alert people to the presence of deer by using heat sensing or infrared technology, as well as scare off deer by releasing a predator's (such as a wolf of coyote) scent. When the sign sensed a deer, it would use a flashing light to warn drivers and spray the wolf scent to get deer off the road.
