The 'Warning Cone' is a folding traffic cone that makes it easier for roadside workers to mark safety boundaries. Although traffic cones serve an important purpose, they can be difficult and time-consuming to set up. The Warning Cone helps roadside workers save time and energy when blocking off traffic.

The Warning Cone was designed by a team of researchers at Asia University. Instead of making individual road signs, the researchers came up with a folding traffic cone that can be expanded from its carrying base. The accordion-like device can be used to redirect traffic and protect roadside workers from oncoming vehicles. Aside from its safety features, the simple device is also easy to set up and take down.

The Warning Cone provides an simple and effective alternative to traditional traffic cones.
