Liked on YouTube: The LED Traffic Light and the Danger of “But Sometimes!”

Around the mid-2000’s, the LED traffic light began making its way onto the scene. Recent developments in LED technology meant that energy efficient replacements for the standard incandescent lamp were beginning to appear. Municipalities rejoiced with the energy savings they provided, but in cold climates they weren’t met with quite as warm a welcome. Not producing sufficient heat to melt snow on their lenses, some drivers became confused by ambiguous signals and caused fatal accidents.
This video tells the tale of why this newfound “problem” generated harsh criticism to the new technology, and explains why this reaction is entirely dumb and regressive.

Watch me take apart one of these traffic light modules here:

Adam shows off the incredible ZF-2 he and his team made for the most recent episode of Savage Builds, and for the first time, compares it with his Zorg Industries ZF-1 replica. With the two pieces side by side, you get a sense of what it took to cram all of the artillery inside Adam’s working prop, and why it’s a whopping 40 pounds!

In der früheren Version dieses Videos habe ich unzulässigerweise behauptet, Frau Alexandra Grossmann hätte Bullshit verzapft und ihr Gehirn nicht benutzt. Dafür entschuldige ich mich. Sie hat nicht Bullshit sondern Unsinn verzapft und selbstverständlich ihr Gehirn benutzt, nur halt leider nicht dazu, die von ihr zitierten Quellen auf Plausibilität zu prüfen. Den Ablauf des Falls erläutere ich in einem kurzen Vorspann dieses Videos, in dem ich kritische Passagen unkenntlich gemacht habe.

Aufgrund der Parallelen zu einem früheren Fall: Auszüge aus einem offenen Brief der Universität Graz an das Bundesinstitut für Risikobewertung vom 13. Mai 2015, der von der derzeitigen Rektorin, Frau Univ.-Prof. Christa Neuper, unterzeichnet wurde. Schlechte Aussichten für einen Maulkorb. 🙂

“Namens des Rektorats kann ich Ihnen versichern, dass durch die Stellungnahme des Herrn Professor Dr. Mayer keinesfalls die Position der Universität Graz ausgedrückt wurde. Dies wäre allein schon aufgrund der Befugnisse und der gesetzlichen Kompetenzlage nicht möglich, da nur das Rektorat zu einer formalen Außenvertretung der Universität berufen ist. Es handelt sich daher um Äußerungen, die nur der Freiheit der Lehre und Forschung des einzelnen Wissenschaftlers zuzurechnen sind.”

“Dem Rektorat stehen keine Möglichkeiten zu Gebote, namens der Universität als Arbeitgeberin den wissenschaftlichen Disput einzugreifen. Dem steht die im österreichischen Staatsgrundgesetz garantierte Freiheit der Wissenschaften und ihrer Lehre ebenso entgegen wie die Unmöglichkeit, als Rektorat in dem konkreten Wissenschaftsgebiet eine fachliche Stellungnahme abgeben zu können.”
