Siemens VDO Road Sign Reader

“120kph? How fast is that in mi…oh crap a tree!” Eliminate the need to even read oncoming road signs with the Siemens VDO-created system that reads them for you and displays it in your heads-up-display. The system reads the signs and interprets them, matching up posted speed limits with what you’re going at right now.

The Siemens-designed system should be available to car manufacturers within two years, and hopefully they add in a mechanism to automatically speed up drivers who are going below the speed limit.
