Alert System for High Speed and Acceleration in Land Vehicles


Objectives: Design and build an electronic audiovisual warning device for land transport vehicles operators which allows correcting, in real time, operation errors for overstep the speed limits and/or acceleration established. Additionally, the device allows the identification by keyboard of the vehicle operator for the subsequent generation of individualized statistics. Methods/Analysis: This investigation will allow the development of an electronic equipment that alerts the land vehicles operator, in real time and at the moment when they are getting out of control in some of the critical variables for safe driving, namely speed and acceleration, allowing to correct the mistakes, thanks to a timely and easy to understand information. Findings: The incorporation of electronic early warning devices of common driving errors for land transport operators allows a significant reduction in road accident rates, thanks to the stimulation of self-care and self-control, by means of agile and timely information within the vehicle cabin. Improvements: Currently the major research in this subject is around the training and investigation of accidents but do not have many objective tools to measure and qualify operators in the application of the standards and improvement plans that are taught (industrial safety, basic driving, traffic regulations, defensive driving and basic mechanics, among others).
