Opel is introducing a new safety technology that reads the traffic signs and displays them on your instrument panel in your car.
The Traffic Sign Detection can read speed limit and no-passing signs and even notify drivers when speed restrictions have been lifted. Depending on light conditions, the system begins to recognize and repeatedly read signs at 100 meters. If a picture matches an image of a road sign in the car’s software, the sign is displayed in the instruments panel.
The system always displays the most relevant information for safe driving, filtering out many signs that may overwhelm drivers. If two signs are recognized in close proximity to one another, then special notice signs, like “no passing” restriction would take precedence over a speed limit sign.
