Digital car number plates appeared in CaliforniaMay 30, 2018
In the US state launched a pilot project with digital license plates that will allow drivers to exchange messages, and also simplify the process of registering cars
The California authorities launched a pilot project using digital car numbers, to which various messages can be output. This is reported by the publication Sacramento Bee.
New registration marks are a simple graphic tablet with built-in battery and computer chips. The owner of the car can display on the display, for example, advertising messages or useful information about the traffic situation. When such a mode is activated, the registration number itself is displayed in the upper corner of the screen. In this case, you can use this service only during parking.
In additional, developers noted that the digital numbers are equipped with a chip with the ability to track the location, which should help find the car when hijacking. Finally, the innovation is designed to greatly simplify the procedure for registration or re-registration of vehicles.
The cost of digital numbers, which will be distributed through automobile dealers in California, was $ 699. Another seven dollars will cost a subscription fee. At the same time, the authorities have introduced a restriction on the use of such numbers. The limit was 175 thousand sets – about 0.5% of the total number of cars registered in California.
