The Intelligent Speed Limiter is a new gadget, developed by Ford, that uses intelligent technology to limit vehicle speed. This technology could be a lifesaver for people who have a hard time keeping tabs on speed limits.
Drivers can activate the system and manually enter the maximum speed at which they want to travel, using steering wheel controls. If they threaten to exceed the limit, the system will slow them back down by electronically limiting fuel flow, which is safer than simply applying the brakes. This system does open up the possibility that drivers could unintentionally speed when going downhill, but the system uses audible warnings to warn against this.
The Intelligent Speed Limiter won't just help you avoid speeding tickets, it could even save your life.
