A receiver (8) is provided on the motor vehicle (6) and receives the signal sent by the transmitter (4.1, 4.2). The motor vehicle (6) also has a warning device. A device on the motor vehicle (6) compares the driving speed measured by the speedometer of the motor vehicle (6) with that of the receiver (8) with the maximum speed signal sent by the transmitter (4.1, 4.2) and received by the receiver (8). The warning device is actuated at a speed measured by the speedometer above the maximum speed received by the receiver (8).

Description

  • The invention relates to a device for display an excessive speed when driving a Motor vehicle.
  • Most and especially the most serious traffic accidents are attributed to excessive speed.
  • The object of the invention is a device with low To provide effort that is excessive speed of the vehicle indicates that the number of Traffic accidents can be reduced drastically.
  • This is according to the invention by the in claim 1 marked device reached. In the subclaims are reproduced advantageous embodiments of the invention.
  • According to the invention is on the lane section on which one Maximum speed is prescribed or adhered to should be installed, a transmitter that sends a signal that corresponds to the maximum speed, sends. The Motor vehicle is equipped with a receiver that sends the transmitter Receives maximum speed signal, a warning device as well as a device that the from the speedometer of the Motor vehicle measured driving speed with that of Transmitter sent and received by the receiver Top speed signal compares and at one from the speedometer measured speed above that received by the receiver Maximum speed actuated the warning device.
  • The warning device can be an optical device, for example a flashing light, e.g. B. the flashing light Hazard warning flashers of the motor vehicle. Preferably however, an acoustic warning device is used, i.e. a Loudspeaker, possibly the radio's loudspeaker and / or another already existing in the motor vehicle acoustic system.
  • The acoustic warning device is preferably designed such that that she is able to have a conditional or to generate conditioned reflex when the driver of the motor vehicle, if it exceeds the maximum speed, for example a corresponding traffic sign runs over.
  • For this purpose, the warning device preferably generates a warning signal, which is perceived by the driver as unpleasant, e.g. B. a loud and / or high and / or changing tone or sequence of tones. Such a warning signal, which the driver has an unconditional, triggers innate stimulus, d. H. an uncomfortable one Sensation, namely according to psychological laws with a other indifferent, offered at the same time, artificial stimulus, i.e. the one indicated by the traffic sign Top speed to be coupled so that the driver over time only on the conditioned or conditional Stimulus reacts, if only when it is too high Speed a speed limit road sign sees his driving speed reflexively reduced.
  • The recipient is preferably on a traffic sign appropriate. It can be a traffic sign that prescribes a certain maximum speed, or recommends, or traffic signs that have a curve, school or Show the like, not a specific one Top speed. Also in countries where general Maximum speeds are prescribed, the transmitter at each any traffic sign. Instead of one Traffic sign can also be another existing one or additional facility act on the lane where the transmitter can be attached.
  • The transmitter is preferably oriented so that it only in the direction of travel of the road assigned to it sends. To do this, the transmitter can be found on the back of the Traffic signs should be attached. The recipient is preferably on Motor vehicle designed for reception from the transmitter from behind, so preferably outside on the back of the motor vehicle appropriate. This allows the top speed signal of the Transmitter received with high reliability by the receiver become. Above all, the signal sent by the transmitter is disruptive not the oncoming vehicles as these are the signals a transmitter can also only receive from behind.
  • The device according to the invention can also be used to display a Top speed of zero or a few km / h, e.g. B. 1 or 2 km / h. The device according to the invention can also show the driver that he is in the wrong position Direction of travel. That is, the invention Device can be attached to one way streets, for example on the back of the traffic sign that is on a One-way street shows "No entry". In particular, the device according to the invention but also against so-called Ghost drivers, so motor vehicles can be used on the multi-lane roads, especially motorways, on a lane in drive in the wrong direction. The transmitters can do this For example, on any traffic signs on the Be arranged front. At the same time, an extreme unpleasant warning signal when driving in the wrong direction be delivered.
  • The transmitter can be an infrared transmitter, an RF (radio frequency) Be a transmitter or the like that has a range, which are preferably at least over the entire width of the Roadway stretches. For multi-lane roads, the Sound quality of the respective transmitter is therefore preferably only extend over the lane assigned to it. The Signal that the transmitter sends, for example, a be phase or amplitude modulated signal. The The transmitter can be powered by a battery possibly fed by a solar module.
  • The top speed signal sent by the transmitter can be adjustable. So the top speed that any number can be set, starting from zero Top speed, for example up to 150 km / h. To a corresponding keyboard can be provided on the transmitter.
  • The setting of the transmitter can be done on site, e.g. B. manually take place, but in particular also remotely controlled, preferably by Wireless. So the mobile radio technology for setting the Maximum speed can be used that the concerned Displays traffic sign and which the transmitter sends. In order to For example, sections of a road can be other maximum speed can be switched, for example in traffic accidents, fog, black ice or like. Switching can be done from a central office be carried out or by mobile radio, for example by the Police or other authorized person who registers the relevant section of road.
  • The receiver is preferably in the range of Motor vehicle license plate arranged on the back of the motor vehicle. So he can on the edge of the rear license plate be attached, that is to an area that is in the most motor vehicles are in the same place. By aligning the transmitter on this area this will Signal of the transmitter with maximum strength from the receiver receive.
  • The device on the motor vehicle, that of the speedometer of the motor vehicle measured driving speed with that of Transmitter sent, received with the receiver Comparing top speed signal can be a simple one electronic computer, for example a microcomputer. Also can already do this in most motor vehicles existing on-board computers are used. The speedometer can any tachometer or other Be device that the driving speed of the vehicle detected.
  • The warning device can last for a predetermined period of time, z. B. a minute, be switched off, for. B. by a corresponding button on the dashboard. So that can Warning signal immediately after it has been displayed or sounds be switched off to shorten the warning time. If this predetermined period has expired, the driver the Max speed still does not keep and the vehicle the next transmitter happens at too high a speed actuated the warning device again.
  • The motor vehicle can also have a transmitter that sends a signal that the measured with the tachometer Speed corresponds. The transmitter can do this at the Be attached to the rear of the motor vehicle, for example in Area of the vehicle registration number. So that can for example a police vehicle with a corresponding recipient, that follows a vehicle that with the invention Device and such a transmitter is equipped, the respective speed of the vehicle in front Interrogate.
  • The device according to the invention is at low cost connected. There is only one receiver on the motor vehicle to install. As a device that measures the speedometer Driving speed with that received by the receiver Top speed signal compares and at increased Speed actuated the warning device can be a simple one Microchip or computer or without any if necessary additional hardware of the on-board computer of the motor vehicle which is generally connected to the speedometer anyway. A warning device is also used, for example Speaker used, z. B. the speaker of the radio can be used so that the costs on the vehicle in the reduce significantly to the assembly and the receiver to let. This contrasts with a significant reduction of Traffic accidents due to excessive speed. So is for example conceivable that Motor vehicle liability insurance for motor vehicles with the inventive Device lower the premiums accordingly.
  • The device according to the invention is primarily for Road vehicles, i.e. cars and trucks as well as motorcycles certainly.
  • The invention is illustrated below by way of example Drawing described in more detail, the only figure schematically one Part of a street showing from above.
  • A traffic sign 3.1 is then arranged on the carriageway 1 in the direction of travel 2 and prescribes a maximum speed of 50 km / h. A transmitter 4.1 is attached to the rear of the traffic sign, which emits a transmitting lobe 5.1 in the direction of travel 2 and extends over the entire lane 1 . The transmitter 4.1 sends a signal that corresponds to the maximum speed in the direction of travel 2 , ie 50 km / h.
  • The car 6 has on the edge of the license plate 7 a receiver 8 which receives the signal from the transmitter 4.1 . A computer in the car 6 compares the speed measured by the speedometer of the car 6 with the speed sent by the transmitter 4.1 and received by the receiver 8 . At a speed measured by the tachometer, which lies above the maximum speed signal received by the receiver 8 , a preferably not shown, preferably acoustic warning device in the interior of the car 6 is actuated, which the driver finds uncomfortable.
  • As shown in the drawing, the carriageway 1 is divided into two carriageways 11 and 12 by a branch. Traffic signs 13 , 14 are provided at the junction, namely traffic sign 3.2 "right past" and traffic signs 3.3 and 3.4 "no entry".
  • At the rear of the traffic sign 3.2 , a transmitter 4.1 is provided, which transmits with the sound lobe 5.2 , which extends over the road 11 in the direction of travel 14 . The transmitter 4.1 sends a signal that corresponds to a maximum speed of, for example, 1 km / h. If a vehicle equipped with the device according to the invention travels at the junction on the carriageway 11 in the direction of travel 14 , that is to say on the wrong carriageway, a warning signal is triggered in this vehicle.
