    integration with "stand-alone" radar detectors?

    yes. Though I imagine you can tell server-side when something is a populated area = more likely to false. I agree. that's why layered approach seems to be best. ;) I see. Well, I just hope you have enough future compat in the protocol to bring the other stuff in once ready. I agree audio...

    integration with "stand-alone" radar detectors?

    (hm, this turned out to be a rather long reply) Well, so there's be a supported list of detectors that play along easily? ;) Some data is better than no data. Well, there are certain things still possible: If we assume all Ka are non-false, we can detect rolling Ka just fine by their...

    integration with "stand-alone" radar detectors?

    it depends on implementation. if the old one was just looking for a ramp up in volume then that of course would be unreliable. fft seems to allow us to more accurate classification of radar detector sounds by their specific frequency "signature". here's a spectrogram of a quiet k-band (volume...

    What is the future technology of speed enforcement and detection?

    laser makes little sense when operated from above sine the direction of movement does not match the direction fo laser. Using road markings or whatever to see the car speed from above (like current plane enforcement does) makes a lot more sense (and you can't jam it). The obvious downside to...

    What is the future technology of speed enforcement and detection?

    the problem with this all is it's far from perfect, the systems have a lot of added latency and such. What you describe is infeasible today (With what's in today's cars) even when such lanes are physically separated from rest of traffic by a barrier. Many HOV lanes are not separated like this...

    What is the future technology of speed enforcement and detection?

    no, it was not. Plenty of false positives and misdetections all around. About the only system in wide use is the one from Mobileye and there's research and observations showing their deficiencies widely available. Tesla started to roll their own, but it happens to have a bunch of false...

    What is the future technology of speed enforcement and detection?

    The problem with infrastructure buildout is: there's no accepted comprehensive standard, so which implementation would you choose as an OEM and why? there's no accepted comprehensive standard, so which implementation would you choose as a locality What's the benefit for the locality to do this...

    What is the future technology of speed enforcement and detection?

    that's debatable. going 70mph vs 90mph for a 500 miles trip saves you 1.5 hours. That's a matter of arriving in time for dinner or past the closing time. On shorter trips - sure, there are little gains to be made even today. This must be why dashcams are illegal in many European countries...

    integration with "stand-alone" radar detectors?

    Thanks for the link. I am surprised it was not integrated into highway radar at least in some form since it seems to be the obvious next step (was the SEAL project going to depend on this and then got dropped?) not sure how bluetooth profiles play a role here. Also was mostly thinking dedicated...

    integration with "stand-alone" radar detectors?

    Just before I sink a bunch of time into proof of concept for something that was already considered and rejected for whatever reason that is not yet obvious to me, I guess I'll ask here first ;) We all know that these radar detectors (I have uniden r3 ATM) have various sounds to alert us of...

    JBV1 frozen?

    I see, thanks. I agree "frozen" is not proper wording (that I borrowed from the thread starter)as it is responsive, just the map stops updating. I guess for novice users all the telltales like "Red gps indicator" and "speedometer color" are not noticeable. All I saw was "the map is not moving...

    JBV1 frozen?

    I wonder if some user-visible diagnostic could be published in such a case? E.g. Waze reports "no GPS" and that's how you know something is up. I just found that MIUI (have a cheap Mi Max 3 as the dedicated on the road android phone) tends to kill app access to GPS when in background until you...

    heat maps on a time basis?

    I wonder if it was looked into any sort of a time mapping of alerts (since currently there's no crowd-sourced RD-detected alerts that only applies to the ones sourced from waze and the like I guess, hopefully crowd sourced alerts from RD users could also be done, the patent does not seem to...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    Um? I have no intention to actually drive 200 miles just to see the judge (twice, the summons are for dates that are 2 months apart!). I probably will just prepay both tickets. I could hire a local lawyer but their trick apparently is "go to my speedometer calibration shop, they can demonstrate...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    Thanks for the offer, I think for now I'll just play with the detectors. baby steps ;) And yes, Tesla service is complicated, the service centers are scarce (guess why I had to go to Atlanta from Knoxville yesterday?) But I do not want to turn this into a Tesla thread if you don't mind. Also...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    Well, the first one commented something to the effect of "89 in 70 is complicated so I'll write it as 85 in 70" which I now know meant he did not have to do the reckless charge and all that. Fortunately I took the hint and the next hit 10 miles down the road was at only 83/70. Though now that I...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    well, I guess they did not find any of cars around me (at most +10mph I'd estimate) enticing then (and I dropped my speed to PSL right away of course). The two stationary LEOs had 35.xxx frequency though. the worst part is - because it's a Tesla (with their legendary quality requiring frequent...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    it's a model X. I hope there's no need to cut anything for obvious reasons. in what section of it? All I see is time, location, the law section and description is just detected speed/PSL. And the of course officer name and badge. These are K-band, I had Ka signal 34.xxx, really strong with no...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    TBF I am a bit underwhelmed by the whole RD thing with the little usage I got so far. I just did roundtrip to Atlanta from Knoxville on I-70 (400 miles). I got a Ka C/O from two cop cars on an overpass with full lights on so they clearly were not catching anybody + unexplainable Ka for a couple...

    Got two tickets and don't like it

    This was before I got the RD, so I've no idea. It was 4am so my usual CMs (mostly waze, hehe) did not really work. I don't see the method in the summons. Now that I know what I know, I am surprised I was able to make that trip 3 times before they caught me. (normally don't go in that direction...
