    Usually it takes 3 seconds for pre-warning, and 30 meters distance is needed at the speed of 36KM/H.

    Light of 3-5 times the width of the road is necessary for right decision of turn left or right to round obstacles ahead.

    Waterproof
    Tough outdoor environment may be experienced.

    Li-ion batteries
    Li-ion batteries provide much power the same size of AA batteries and better life span.
