However, they proved too controversial for normal motorway use, but no-one seems to mind them being used in roadwork areas, and so they are.
That unit can just tell every thing via its peripherals.
(A smart client computer)
I think it is good for hospital and delivery companies to
install it on their veichles.
For example, the management team can find out their live behaviours and historical logs,
Like, jerking(jolt), speeding,location and MANY other attributes.
Yeah, the cool thing is geo fence.
I am afraid one day that kind of unit can be somehow planted under human skin!@#!@#
If that is the case, too BAD!
Some feel that speed limits are an annoyance and aren't to be followed. It's all part of the mentality of driving. An aggressive approach to speeding easily overflows into an aggressive approach to merging, overtaking etc.
But can you imagine the down sides? I would not want to be tracked whatever I do. Civil liberties. Something like that happened I would most definately leave the country I was in. The Czech Republic is already turning into a country that is adopting all the euro crap that is shoved down our throats. I liked living here because you were relatively free and there was a healthy attitude to the rules. Now rules and nasty penalties are being introduced for everything so people live in fear. Give me the old days anyday.
Bottom line, I can see the benefits, but also the downside, and I personally am inclined to be VEEEEERY wary of big-brother type activities. I'd rather always lock my vehicle with the key only (so they never get locked in!), rather than give someone a window in so they might also help me one day.
