Patent for Sale:Device to Reduce Vehicles Entering the Freeway Traveling in the Wrong Direction
The patent technology is a system for reducing the possibly of a vehicle entering a freeway ramp in the wrong direction of travel, towards oncoming traffic. The system is comprised of equipment used in conjunction with orbiting satellite transceivers with receivers, such as Global Positioning Systems (GPS) or a navigation/assistance service, housed in a vehicle and having the ability in real time to compute the receiver's, and consequently the vehicle's, longitude, latitude, and direction of travel. These devices in collaboration with a controller and freeway-mounted mirrors constitute a timely, cost-effective, realizable, and simple means to reduce the possibility of entering a freeway ramp in the wrong direction of travel.
Primary Application of the Technology
Class 701: Data Processing:Vehicles, Navigation, And Relative Location
This class provides for electrical computers, digital data processing systems, and data processing processes for transferring data between computers or processes wherein the computers or processes employ the data before or after transferring and the employing affects the transfer of data therebetween. This class is for electricalapparatus and corresponding methods for performing data processing operations in which there is a significant change in the data or for performing calculation operations wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer functions to indicate a condition of a vehicle, to regulate the movement of a vehicle, to monitor the operation of a vehicle, or to solve a diagnostic problem with the vehicle. It also provides electrical apparatus and corresponding methods wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer function to determine the course, position, or distance traveled. It further provides electrical apparatus and corresponding methods wherein the electrical data processing system or calculating computer functions to determine the relative location of an object (e.g., person or vehicle) and may include communication of the determined relative location to a remote location. In this class there are three main divisions: 1. vehicle control, guidance, operation or indication; 2. navigation; 3. relative locationSubclass 117: Traffic analysis or control of surface vehicle
Subclass 301: Collision avoidance
