Iqrar realised that sometimes vehicle drivers may not be aware of a speed breaker especially if white stripes are not painted on it. As a result mishaps may occur. The situation may be more problematic if an ambulance driver fails to recognise a speed breaker and jumps over it. To solve this, Iqrar has suggested a device that can identify the presence of a speed breaker ahead from a few meters and alert the driver.
Eldest of four siblings, Iqrar has an interest in electronics and wants to become a scientist. He is good in academics and mentions that the level of concentration during studies matters more than the duration of the study.
