Vauxhall Debuts Automatic Speed Limit Sign Reading


Driving along a new piece of road, it is very easy to overlook a speed limit sign.  You could remain blissfully unaware of the new speed limit until it was too late.  Vauxhall Motors, a British subsidiary of General Motors, has a solution.  They have developed a camera that can actually read a speed limit sign on the road and post the latest speed limit on the dash for you.

The system grabs 30 pictures a second and processes it via image recognition software.  The system is not  just a concept, since it will debut in Vauxhall’s 2010 Insignia sedan.  Of course, deciding to actually slow down is still left up to the driver.
