Detection Speed Ramp / Speed Ramp

Detection Speed Ramp
Detection Speed Ramp

Speed ramp use the raise slope to form a barrier, prompting the vehicle driver slow down the speed in order not to suffer the uncomfortable feeling from ups and downs. However, the driver who slow down the speed still feel the gap, and the car suffer damage because of the strong shake. “Detection Speed Ramp” use an elastic canvas filled non-Newtonian fluid. The viscosity of non-Newtonian fluid will increase and even become a temporary solid when pressure increase. That way, the fast car would hit the solid Detection Speed Ramp and suffer the uncomfortable gap. And the slow car would pass the fluid Detection Speed Ramp easily.
