Overestimating the road traction of one's own car can be fatal while taking a sharp turn. I suggest the integration of an instrument which calculates the lateral forces over the next 10 seconds and displays a warning if physical stability limits will be exceeded.
The graph will respond in real time to the vehicle velocity, providing valuable feedback for the driver, especially in critical situations.
Current sensory data (GPS, map data and electronic traction control) are sufficient to provide a steady stability prediction, and existing gauges can be used as display.
If the study proves to be successful, transition towards the new technology would be only a matter of a software update.
