Hyundai Files Patent For Speed Bump Detection System

Written By:

South Korean carmaker Hyundai has filed patents for Speed Bump Detection System with the US Patent and Trademark Office.

The system uses GPS, camera and sensors to determine an upcoming speed bump's height, with and other details. It will send a warning message to the driver if the vehicle is travelling too fast.

The system specifies less than 30 km/h for bumps on standard roads and less than 10 km/h for bumps on local roads, according to the patent. The system can even detect fake speed bumps and ignore them.

Although some may think this technology is just too much, speed bumps cause many accidents. Take Karnataka for example, the state is very famous for not highlighting or marking speed breakers. The Mysore Bangalore road is one very good example.

More accidents take place because of the speed breakers that are set up almost every kilometer, which is just unnecessary!
