Siemens VDO has developed a traffic sign recognition system that monitors road signs and warns the driver of the speed limit if they are driving to fast. A camera on the front of the car constantly monitors the road ahead of the driver scanning for speed limit and other road signs. If the driver’s speed limit is above the posted sign, they are warned to slow down. Siemens is saying that the new system may go into production as early as 2008.
