Honors Thesis


The speed feedback sign is an instrumental tool in providing feedback to drivers on the road to ensure the safety of all patrons around them by showing said drivers an instantaneous visual comparison to the speed limit. While the entire project involves the creation of a speed feedback sign equipped with a camera to record video of speeding vehicles, the contribution presented here is the display for the sign. The sign will not only provide the numerical vehicle speed, but also a message to flash intermittently at a given vehicle speed. The display on the speed feedback sign must not only adhere to Federal Highway Administration (FHWA) guidelines, but also the sponsor’s guidelines. Factoring the cost of all implemented components for the construction of this project, the overall design and product is a fraction of the cost of most current commercial competing products on the market
