What is a GPS integrated speed limiter?
A GPS integrated speed limiter is a single device that can provide both GPS Tracking and Speed limiting functionalities. At Pepo Speed Limit, our GPS Integrated Device is approved by the Federal Transport Authority of Ethiopia on meeting the standard set by Ethiopian Standard Agency. It can be installed in all vehicles but the method of limiting the speed may differ and require additional accessories.
How do Speed Limiters Work?
Put simply, sensors in your car detect how fast you are going, then this information is communicated to the engine’s computer. When the pre-determined speed is met, the computer restricts the flow of fuel and air to the engine. Therefore, as a driver, you will not be able to exceed the pre-determined top speed.
However, all speed limiters can be overridden. If there is a need to speed up quickly, pushing down hard on the accelerator will work. Further, it should be made clear that this system does not affect the car’s braking system.
