No more excuses that you weren’t paying attention. New technology from Siemens can read those road signs for you, including those devilish speed limit signs.
It’s an onboard computer and it plugs-and-plays nicely with your vehicle, providing a visual display of what those road signs actually mean. We can see how this would be especially helpful at night.
One particularly helpful (or annoying, depending on your point of view) feature is the ability of the computer to process the number on the speed limit sign and display it next to your actual speed. Exceed the speed limit and get a large red exclamation point as a warning.
Siemens hopes to get this computer in vehicles within two years.
