Speed Wyz II
Cole AndersonTauranga Intermediate
The Speed Wyz II is a speed limit road sign that changes according to different weather conditions, helping people to drive safer. The idea came to Cole when he was travelling on a highway through some heavy rain. The other cars around him were driving at the normal speed limit, ignoring the weather conditions.
The Speed Wyz was originally based on electronic components, the 2016 upgrade incorporates Arduino and temperature gauges, making it easier to alter – if the temperature needs to be changed, this can be input into the program.
Cole won 1st place for Junior Environment and was a finalist in Junior Engineering, excellent work!
