Automatic Cruise Control Hurdle

25 KPH at Roadworks & Accidents?
The legislation to require this instead of 40 KPH at roadworks and accidents may present a problem to innovative cruise control initiatives that automatically lower speed based on GPS keyed map & traffic data nowadays on the Internet. Most Cruise Control modules only start working at & above 40 KPH no doubt because of tolerance or error accumulations becoming problematic at lower thresholds. The South Australian Government may want to rethink this change because the technology approach promises far better gains in lives saved with time and this legislation may just thwart that technology being worthwhile to progress.

About adelaidepete

Now live in Adelaide South Australia and have always worked in Systems & Software Engineering. I am enjoying commenting on, suggesting and discussing innovative solutions to problems and useful risk mitigation strategies and recently interested in the realm of public policy re urban planning & disasters - the focus of this blog. I am interested in technology, gadgetry, enhancing productivity & functionality, urban planning, military thinking and public policy. I enjoyed periods I spent in USA (Reston, Virginia Beach & Dallas) & Europe (Germany, Spain, Italy & Greece) but genuinely love Australia, most people, animals, singing, dancing & life.
