Starting in 2022, drivers of new cars in the UK will highly likely be dealing with mandatory speed limiter (Intelligent Speed Assist, ISA) tech installed in their vehicles.
This is based on new EU rules, and the UK is expected to follow suit despite no longer being a member of the bloc. Based on a provisional agreement, the European Commission’s regulation is expected to come into force on July 6.
A deadline of two years will be given for new cars sold before this date to also have an ISA installed. This technology can be based on GPS data or cameras for traffic sign recognition, or both.
Driving will be further restricted and drivers monitored and controlled through a range of other mandatory implementations such as emergency braking, emergency stop signal, data loggers, driver fatigue detection system, lane keep assist and reversing sensors or cameras.
