Road-racers looking to avoid radar traps, beware — your days are numbered. Researchers at the University of Florida have developed software that allows ordinary video cameras to determine a vehicle's speed by recording its progress past fixed objects. The system — developed using a $5 million grant from the U.S. Air Force — is similar to those already in use in the U.K. and Australia. Because such systems don't use lasers or other active technology, they can't be foiled by radar detectors.
