TEAM FROM DEDAN KIMATHI UNIVERSITY OF TECHNOLOGY (DeKUT) DESIGNS A ONE OF A KIND SPEED GOVERNOR

Blackboxx 3

DeKUT has developed a speed governor that does not only help achieve the control of speed but advances safety and security on the road to another level by ensuring that the speed of a vehicle, on the road can be monitored in real time and that the vehicle can only move at the designated speed. The Speed Governor has additional features of providing information on the location of the car. This is made possible by GPS and GPRS modules embedded in the governor. Interesting to note is that if the speed governor is disconnected, the vehicle goes to a limp mode where it will not be possible to drive it in excess of 40km/hour.  Read More>>
