Re: Reducing cost - speed limit readers

That's true, DrQuine.  I have missed speed limit signs on the highway when passing an 18 wheeler.  Maybe it shoud be a combination of database and visual.

I hope the speed limit reader doesn't mistake highway numbers for speed limits.  In some areas they are quite similar. More significantly, if the reader misses a sign, it will report the previously observed limit.  In many areas this could be a very serious problem (small towns often have speed limit signs obscured by trees so the car will contnue to report an unrealistic 65 mph highway speed limit). Also, many roads continue for a considerable distance without a speed limit sign so the limit will be unknown. All in all, I'm predicting that the GPS database will prove more reliable.

Reducing cost

Good plan to reduce the cost.  This will help to increase adoption.  I like the addition of speed limits using traffic sign recognition.  My GPS has the speed limit, but it depends on the database instead of actual, so it could be out of date.

In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
