VW Phaeton: Reading street signs using windshield mounted camera

VW Phaeton

The new VW Phaeton is a high-tech ride with a windshield mounted camera which can read street signs and some other cool stuff. Awesome!

In addition to regular navigational systems, the Phaeton will be the first to integrate a new system which can download Google maps satellite images and points of interest info over a mobile phone, and then laid over existing maps within the GPS, providing a far superior, up to date database of information to the driver. And then there’s the camera installed behind the windshield, which can read street sign information such as posted speed limits, no passing zones and the like.
