Automatic Speeding Waring System (ASWS) Printer Friendly Version
You will propably have heard that the “Electronic Stability Control” will be installed in most of the 2007 model cars and trucks, to serve as a standard safety feature to boot-up the vehicle safety rate, and it is promised that it lowers your car insurance rate as well.
But wait, the ASWS would even go further and be the best additional safety feature for both, driver and public. I want every new car in the future be equipped with the ASWS device which prevents speeding motorists from breaking speed limits on all public roads.
This smart GPS like unit can be installed in any car with or without the NAV system. The unit will recognize the road name and the speed limits on it; then start monitoring the vehicle speed. The monitoring process is similar to an automatic speed-volume control system in most new car stereos - “louder if car goes faster”. If the vehicle exceeds more than ten mph of the given speed limits, it gives one warning to slow down. If the driver is continuing with the same speed or breaks the limit a second time on the same road, the ASWS will issue a ticket announcement and send that information to the county or state department of traffic enforcement accordingly. The official traffic violation letter will following by mail.
Further more, this unit also reports to the closest emergency authority, if the vehicle air-bag is activated in an accident. This will work just like an on-star system. I know, most of you do not like this new technology, because you are a good driver, but think of it as an additional safety feature that will save you car insurance money and increase public road safety, as well as the diver's. It also increases the Police Department resource, since they don’t have to worry much about traffic patrol.

DC A/C Unit For Vehicles Printer Friendly Version
I would like to create a vehicle a/c system that, instead of using the energy from the vehicle's motor to turn the a/c pump, has an electric DC motor to turn the pump, reducing the drag on the engine and increasing fuel economy.
The a/c compressor would get mounted near the fire wall along with the DC motor, then connect them and run power to the DC motor. Splice into the alternator for recharge of an auxillary battery, if needed, or get a high output alternator and battery, to resolve the need for a second battery.
Reward: Make one for my car.

Use state of the art facial recognition system to register users of a car. - This can be done with a resonably priced camera, and in-car-CPU. The car would not start unless a registered user operates the car.
In security parlence, this can be a strong biometrics (second factor authentication) for the car. This can in additional to the key that we may be currently using.
System can be built for registration, addition, deletion, title transfer etc. If the car is supected to be stolen - we can set parameters for them, a variety alerts can be send to authorities.
