THE SAVIEM SPEED DEVICE

LE DISPOSITIF DE VITESSE SAVIEM

The system developed by the Society Saviem is controlled solely by the speed of the vehicle. It operates independently of the position of the accelerator and engaged gear ratio. Speed is kept from increasing by the triggering off of the operation, of a low-power pneumatic cylinder that acts on the accelerator control linkage. The acceleration force which normally is approximately 5 kgs, rises to 20 kgs under the action of the pneumatic cylinder. The driver is thus informed of the starting of the cylinder. This system can limit speed to 65 km/h or 85 km/h. (TRRL)
