Technology in Rural Transportation “Simple Solution” #13: Speed Warning SystemsAbstract:
Vehicles traveling too fast for conditions, particularly on curves or long downslopes increase their risk and hence their likelihood of being involved in an accident. This simple solution is a method for warning these vehicles in real-time to the impending dangers with the expectation that the vehicles will slow down. This application was identified as a promising rural Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) solution under a project sponsored by the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) and the ENTERPRISE program. This summary describes the solution as well as opportunities for expansion into the broader context of rural ITS.
