    figure it out yet? they want everyone driving an electric car so they can forbid you to drive it during a 'power crisis'. hackers and solar flares will form the excuse, they will shut down electricity and nobody driving electric is going anywhere until they decide to turn it back on. why is it every advance in technology somehow comes at a cost to our freedom and independence? because it's fucking designed that way!

    Yes; these coils will detect ANY large ferromagnetic body. That's why there's 2 actually, because a bike could have plenty of ferromagnetic material, and it can inadvertently set it off; or intentionally set it off in some cases.

    Paul HaydenPrije mjesec

    In lots of places there are "stop lines" and the sensor is just before the stop line. The law says to stop just before the stop line. But around here (N.W. GA) lots don't read laws. I see cars going past the stop line and sensor and then wait and wait, till they run the red light. I don't drive, rather ride a bicycle. The sensor loops are suppose to be adjusted to pick up bicycles. But most are not. If there is a cross walk button I push it, or have to wait for car or truck and have to get them to stop ON the sensor.

    Fun video, I actually already knew this though, in doing research on the sensors. back when I only had a motorcycle to get to work, there was this light that refused to change for me no matter where on the sensor I stopped. you know what I figured out? want to amplify a magnetic field to trick a sensor into thinking something is there when it isn't? don't rely on the induced magnetic field in your vehicle, bring your own magnetic field. stuck some large permanent magnets to the bottom of the bike and now it trips every time. don't even have to stop on it, just near it.

    No .. FYI, there's 2 coils because they're directional.. loop 1 detects first , then loop 2 triggers the output... . So going backward will not work .. Also , it will not detect the car body as its not dense enough .. but the engine block it will

    I admit this is smarter than our setup in Toronto, which typically has 1 "loop" (it's rectangular here) usually placed so there needs to be 2 cars before a left turn signal is activated... Granted even if there is no one in front, I like to wait on the sensor to trigger the left turn signal *evil laugh*.

    The main board requires a voltage of 1.2v, a 7 or 8 volt symmetric input and another 18v ​​symmetric input, the symmetrical inputs have a 0v ground signal that is on the circuit ground and a value of -18 towards the negative and 18+ towards the positive part, you can replace all the voltages from a battery but it would be a lot of work.
