Title (EN) APPARATUS FOR MONITORING TRAFFIC SIGNALS AND ALERTING DRIVERS
(FR) APPAREIL DE SURVEILLANCE DES FEUX TRICOLORES ET D'AVERTISSEMENT DES CONDUCTEURS
Abstract:
(EN) Traffic safety apparatus (10) includes light-to-frequency converters (11) for monitoring the status of traffic signals (13) and tail lights (15) of same lane close proximity preceding vehicles and when unsafe traffic conditions are detected visually and/or audibly alert signals are provided to the driver. The monitored information can be real-time recorded in the drivers vehicle and if desired, transmitted by wireless to off-vehicle receivers. Recording the information in the vehicle establishes an operational history that is important for such uses as accident reconstruction whereas information transmitted by wireless can be recorded by entities such as law enforcement thereby adding an additional measure of traffic safety as well as providing documentation of driving infractions.
(FR) Un appareil (10) de sécurité routière comprend des convertisseurs (11) lumière-fréquence qui surveillent l'état des feux tricolores (13) et des feux arrière (15) des véhicules suivis situés à proximité dans la même file et envoie au conducteur des signaux d'avertissement visuels et/ou sonores lorsque des conditions de circulation peu sures sont détectées. Les informations surveillées peuvent être enregistrées en temps réel dans le véhicule du conducteur et transmises par liaison sans fil à des récepteurs situés hors du véhicule. L'enregistrement des informations dans le véhicule crée un historique de fonctionnement qui est important pour une utilisation telle que la reconstitution d'un accident alors que les informations transmises par liaison sans fil peuvent être enregistrées par des entités telles que la police, ce qui constitue une mesure supplémentaire de sécurité routière et donne des informations concernant les infractions au code de la route.
