Speeding Tickets from Space?

April 22, 2010 1 comment

Another new technology is being tested to reduce speeding.  For those of us who have a heavy foot and tend to drive fast, this isn’t good news.  Radar detectors and other such devices may become obsolete if the “Speedspike” system takes off.   The good news is that it doesn’t seem to be able to handle short bursts of speed (at least not yet), but can measure accurate speeds over long distances.  So if you’re planning on driving that BMW Convertible or Maserati convertible on your next road trip, enjoy the speed while  you can.

From a post on Slashdot and an article on the UK news site The Telegraph, here are some more details:

Satellites being used to catch speeders as a test in the UK

Satellites being used to catch speeders as a test in the UK - image from Telegraph.co.uk

A new kind of speed camera that uses satellites to measure average speed over long distances is being tested in Britain. The “Speedspike” system combines plate reading technology with a global positioning satellite receiver to calculate average speed between any two points in the area being monitored. From the article: “Details of the trials are contained in a House of Commons report. The company said in its evidence that the cameras enabled ‘number plate capture in all weather conditions, 24 hours a day.’ It also referred to the system’s ‘low cost’ and ease of installation.” I can’t wait to see the episode of MythBusters where they try to avoid getting a speeding ticket from a satellite.

At millions of dollars a pop, satellites aren’t exactly “affordable” but I suppose that the increased revenue from all the new speeding tickets, without the costs of adding more policemen, could make this pay for itself pretty quickly.

License number plate capture regardless of weather conditi0ns…wow. That’s pretty amazing.

Happy and safe driving!

Toward a New Land Speed Record: the North American Eagle “Turbojet Car”

We found a really interesting article on XConomy Seattle and just had to share it with you.  Ed Shadle, 68, and Keith Zanghi, 55, partners and co-owners of the North American Eagle, are nearing the end of “a more than 11-year journey to build the fastest land vehicle in the world. The goal: 800 miles per hour.”  That’s faster than the speed of sound.  According to Wikipedia, “In dry air at 20 °C (68 °F), the speed of sound is 343 meters per second (1,125 ft/s). This equates to 1,236 kilometers per hour (768 mph), or about one kilometer in three seconds and about one mile in five seconds.”

There are a number of competitors to break the current world record for land speed of 763.1 mph, held by Great Britain’s Richard Noble and Andy Green since 1997 with their ThrustSSC.  To set the new record and beat its competitors,

the North American Eagle will have to beat the previous record holders by one percent, meaning that it will need to be clocked at a speed of 770.7 mph for a distance of one mile, twice within a 60-minute time period (going in opposite directions). The two measurements, taken to ensure there is no tailwind advantage, are averaged to give a final speed. In order to push the Eagle even harder, the team has made a number of additions to the engine, including switching from a two-line to a four-line burner, allowing twice as much fuel to be pumped into the afterburner in the same amount of time, and adding about 2,000 more horsepower to the engine.

That, my friends, is FAST and POWERFUL.  Take a look at the North American Eagle:

The North American Eagle: Future World Land Speed Record Holder?

The North American Eagle: Future World Land Speed Record Holder?

The North American Eagle is a 56-foot-long tubular car built from the fuselage of a Lockheed F-104 Starfighter. Shadle and his crew are all based in Washington state.

For both Shadle and Zanghi, the thirst for speed was born out of a love of drag racing at an early age. And naturally, like any “typical teenager of that era,” as Shadle calls himself, drag racing led to more racing at higher speeds, and eventually, flight.

“For me, it started back when I was just a kid back in the late ‘40s, early ‘50s. My uncles were all back from World War II and they got into stock car racing—the old jalopies running on dirt tracks. And of course we used to go to the races, so I’d hang out in the pits and watch my hero uncles,” Shadle said. “My first drag race on a real strip was at an airport. We raced on Friday nights for 50 cents and you could race all night.” Later, in his 20s, Shadle joined the Air Force and developed his career as a pilot.

“Just like Ed, we all grew up with the space program. The Mercury astronauts were my heroes—the Gemini and Apollo [as well]. All I did was build model airplanes when I was a kid,” Zanghi said.

Wish them luck, success, and safety as they speed towards and through the sound barrier!  I wonder if they’ll play Coldplay’s “Speed of Sound” at the victory celebration party?  I think it’s appropriate.

New Heads-Up Display Utilizing Your Entire Windshield – By GM

The folks at General Motors have come up with a new type of heads-up display, this time around using the whole windshield rather than just a small section.  This takes it a step further than even the BMW 7-Series Night Vision with Pedestrian Detection system.  An article in Wired tells more:

GM says it's next-generation heads-up system can use lasers and lane detection sensors to project a "virtual" road edge onto the windshield to help drivers stay on the road during bad weather.

Rather than project info onto a portion of the windshield, GM’s latest experiment uses the entire windshield as a display. Small ultraviolet lasers project data gleaned from sensors and cameras onto the glass. General Motors geeks are working alongside researchers from several universities to develop a system that integrates night vision, navigation and on-board cameras to improve our ability to see — and avoid — problems, particularly in adverse conditions like fog.

“We’re looking to create enhanced vision systems,” says Thomas Seder, a lab manager at GM’s big R&D center in Warren, Michigan.

Trying to make a workable head-up display is a laudable goal. Drivers are inundated by ever-more information from navigation systems and the like, and they need to be able to see and process it easily while keeping their eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. A practical head-up display allows that.

GM’s experimental system goes beyond the night-vision system found in cars like the BMW 7-Series and the HUDs you find in, say, the Chevrolet Corvette or Buick LaCrosse. While those systems will tell you how fast you’re going or whether you’ve left the turn signal on again, Version 2.0 could make you a safer driver.

“Let’s say you’re driving in fog, we could use the vehicle’s infrared cameras to identify where the edge of the road is and the lasers could ‘paint’ the edge of the road onto the windshield so the driver knows where the edge of the road is,”
