Eco Harvest is a soundproof wall designed to solve problems for residents located next to busy roads. This barrier, focused on resolving dust and reducing noise caused by tire friction, provides a comprehensive solution.Equipped with noise energy harvesting technology, road noise is converted into energy. This energy source is then used to operate an advanced air cleaning system to ensure continuous purification of the surrounding air. The air cleaning system works in harmony with Biowol, a functional component that filters out fine dust particles.Biowall uses plants to create a natural filtration system. These plants have the ability to absorb and neutralize air pollutants while providing an additional layer of air purification. Biowall actively contributes to maintaining a cleaner and healthier living environment for road-side residents. It uses dust-free, quiet, and discarded noise energy and enables a better life experience.The UI allows mobile users to easily identify levels of pollutants such as environmental protection contributions in residential spaces and fine dust concentrations by hour. The Road Management Corporation will establish a system that can view information such as air quality and energy harvesting, and monitor devices for errors.
