Control car speed electronically in cities
The idea may not be new, but no industry has yet mass-produced this component. Why is? As is known, fixed speeds are specified on the paths in the cities and on the roads between two towns.
In numbers we find here the 50 km / h, the 70 km / h and 100 km / h as well as the known speed of 130 km / h. It happens too often that the car drivers ignore the speed and are faster than you would like.
The aim of the electronically controlled speed is not to ask the speeders less to pay, but rather that every driver protects his own safety and that of the occupants as much as possible through responsibility and reason. Our assistance systems are more modern and intelligent than ever. The emergency braking assistant in cities, which protects the inattentive passer-by when crossing a street. The laser spacer that adapts to the speed of the person in front. Driving up is no longer so easy. ESP so that the car does not skid into the device when braking improperly and the driver remains in control even in extreme situations.
It's all good, but doesn't protect anyone from driving too fast. This article is intended to clarify that with the support of GPS data and sophisticated map systems like the ones we have on the market today, an automatic speed limit can be integrated into the cars depending on their location. All you need to do is retrofit a WiFi or Bluetooth module. A corresponding software can be programmed or an adaptation can be carried out with existing software from other areas. Spanish ? Not really clear about what's going on? Okay, no problem. You drive your car in the city, you go full throttle in every gear, but your car will never be faster than the legal limit in a city. In this case, according to the speedometer, your car is traveling at 60 km / h real, this would be a speed of 55-56 km / h. Here there is deliberately an upward tolerance. If you then move from a single-lane 50 km / h zone to a safe traffic area that is expanded to 2 lanes, then the permissible speed will be adjusted to 70 km / h. Your car can only drive a maximum of 80 km / h here. Incidentally, this also applies to all automobiles with 2 wheels. The scooter, the motorcycle, if it continues in technology and the ever smaller drives then also for electric bicycles, with a helmet, glove and kidney belt.
Your car communicates with your navigation device or smartphone with an integrated interface. After all, that's always there. You can also program your car so that only your car can be set in motion with this registered smartphone. An additional hurdle to complicate the theft. But there is still room up here. If the dad of two growing children is just so far that you can hand over the car keys to them, then Daddy can also individually adjust the maximum speed downwards. Unfortunately not upwards. Outside of built-up areas, a father can study at which speed the chances of survival are the highest, for example, instead of starting from 100 km / h, he can then raise the cars and driver profile for the son to 80 / km / h and for them Daughter at 90 km / h. With the increasing number of kilometers and thus the gain in experience of each individual child, the dad is reminded every few thousand kilometers whether the pace should now be adjusted again, to the factory settings in this case outside 130 km / h.
So no matter who moves on the streets of the world in the future, even if he wants to, he can't go faster. 2018 & 2019 were strong in frenzy in big cities. Never before have so many innocent people died, however passengers, pedestrians or any other bystanders. Fortunately, it is always the others and you speak freely of everything.
What does this change mean for the future? Cities get fewer signs again. We can see more of a city's natural beauty. Has it not happened to you already? You take pictures and in front of the most beautiful buildings you can find the largest collections of signs. Okay, a speed limit sign won't pull everything out of here either.
The speed signs across Germany have disappeared. One less load that an automobile driver has to concentrate on. The taxpayer will also be happy. A few dozen millions will swallow the signs for 10 years. Including maintenance, cleaning, replacement and installation. Even the employees of the city don't have to expose themselves to less danger, although there may always be only 10 or 20 people installing and carrying out maintenance work, which are then involved in accidents, but that would also be history.
But there is more to be happy about in this context. The world loves green and eco more than ever before. As the production of signs is discontinued, the footprint in terms of "consumption of energy" + "consumption of raw materials" + "consumption of colors on a chemical basis" also shrinks. But the energy that all maintenance teams of signs spend each year is also reduced. The time gained by not having to wait for signs, ultimately ensures that the employees also have less to do. This leaves more time for others without having to hire more employees.
Although the focus here is on security through the addition of a small component, the country's Co2 balance sheet naturally benefits. No extreme driving maneuvers with exorbitant accelerations are possible, the frenzy has come to an end. Others should calculate how much energy can actually be saved here.
But the chain that we build smaller also extends to the areas where rescue workers have less accidents. The fire brigade is less likely to scrape shredded cars from the street and find the torn engine block at a distance of 200m. Of course, the many Raudis who die leave the emergency services one and the same disturbing picture that one has got used to. With 2,000 fatalities and an average of 5-15 helpers on site, 10,000 rescue workers per year can move healthier here after work.
As so often, a small change is the key to a big change.
