Description

"MODULAR ELECTRONICALLY AUTOMATED SYSTEM FOR SAFETY OF TRAFFIC ON THE URBAN AND EXTRA-URBAN ROAD NETWORKS,"
Invention relates to a modular system of active safety capable of operating fully
automatically, consisting of electronically controlled devices, interconnected via radio frequency, usable in specific conditions for the networks of urban roads, as well as for the networks of extra- urban roads.
There are known mechanical, electromechanical or electronic, that: inform the participants of the traffic about some predetermined conditions, repetitive, or special; measure the speed of moving vehicles in traffic; automatically identify offenders who exceed the speed limit; warn traffic participants about the presence in the area of some emergency vehicles, or of some special vehicles; limit the maximum speed of moving vehicles; stop the march of vehicles; prohibit the access of vehicles on the sidewalk.
The disadvantage of these devices is that: they are not interconnected; important building changes are involved to comply with certain regional or local situations; presenting difficulties to aggregation as functional systems; do not allow the immediate control of the contravention.
The purpose of the invention is to reduce mortality, injuries and material damage caused by: collision between vehicles, the injuries caused to pedestrians and cyclists, to cover the lack of permanent information for traffic participants about some special conditions occurred on certain areas of road, to induce a responsible attitude of the traffic participants (drivers, pedestrians, cyclists), to cover the lack of immediate effects upon offenders.
The technical problem solved by the invention is designing a modular system consisting of interconnected devices, adaptable for the use in specific conditions of the road traffic, as well as urban and suburban, which allows the real-time control of the speed displacement of vehicles by promptly informing and warning the drivers of vehicles to operate in accordance with: government regulations (maximum speed in the locality, etc.), local regulatory (maximum speed in tourist areas, etc.), traffic with repetitive conditions (the smooth flow of traffic during certain peak times, times of day / night, weekends, etc.), special traffic conditions, including those caused by the occurence or the imminence of certain weather phenomena, or the proximity of some emergency vehicles: police, ambulance, fire department, or special vehicles, including: trams, trains, vehicles accompanying over-sized transport etc.
