A young Moldovan invented a hologram that prevents fog-related accidents

Published

Daniel is another Moldovan-born talented student living abroad who is planning to leave the country for good, aiming to soon obtain the Romanian citizenship.

Daniel Plângău, a student in the second year at the Galati Engineering Faculty, invented a device that projects a hologram for the prevention of traffic accidents, writes Adevarul.

His biggest achievement so far is a holographic system that can be mounted on cars, putting on guard the drivers who are approaching having a car in front.

“The device is mounted on the machines, and when it’s foggy outside, projects a short message or light signals using the fog as a screen so that the approaching drivers are warned and get to slow down,” Daniel explains.

The young man has left the idea that there are currently very many traffic accidents on the fog, many of which have tragic consequences, especially in areas where drivers suddenly enter a zone with good visibility into one where they see almost nothing due to fog.

Daniel’s holographic system has already been awarded by Apan at the UGAL Invent Research and Innovation Salon, organized by the Danube Delta University, with “the prize for increasing the safety of drivers and pedestrians,”.

Currently studying Interactive/Media/Design at the Royal Academy of Art. Based in The Hague, The Netherlands.

The first Gagauz tourist complex in Moldova was inaugurated on November 6 in the village of Congaz, Comrat district. In addition to the four traditional peasant houses with clay walls and reed roofs, the “Gagauz Sofrasi” ethno-touristic complex now has a museum, a cellar, a restaurant with a national-style terrace, a mini-hotel, and a festivities hall.

“Tourism is a niche with great potential but not yet explored in our region. With the help of the European Union, we have succeeded not only in creating a perfect resting place for local and foreign tourists but also an unforgettable tourist attraction for Gagauzia. Visitors can get to know the traditions and history of the country, enjoy traditional Gagauz dishes and the best wines in the area and even participate in gourmet workshops,” says the owner of the complex, Ana Statova.

For the development and promotion of this complex, the owner benefited from counseling and an 18,500 EUR grant from the European Union through the SARD program implemented by UNDP.

The resting park set up on the river Cahul was also inaugurated, which was rehabilitated for a length of 3 km with the assistance of the European Union and the contribution of local and regional public authorities within the SARD program. Over many years, the river crossing the city was a threat to the inhabitants. It hasn’t been cleaned for years and became misty, so after some more heavy rain, the river swelled and flooded all the nearby households. Vulcanesti Mayor Victor Petrioglo said that due to the floods, the local budget lost more than 2 million lei annually, or about 15% of the local budget.

The total cost of the Cahul River Cleaning and Park Planning was €126,942, of which €70,000 was provided by the European Union, and the difference was covered by the regional and community budget.
