Traffic Signs  
Dear Keith

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Traffic_sign

Is it possible to convert the existing Traffic signs into electronic traffic signs so that Automobiles viz cars, trucks, buses, jeeps can play the Traffic sign within their built in internal speaker at a distance ?.

For example :

The transmitter / sensor in Electronic Traffic sign boards will pass the Radio frequency signals and this will be detected by the automobile receiver electronics at a distance. The receiver sensor within the automobile will pay the respective sound files example : "Zebra crossing ahead", "Go Slow, School Ahead", "Drive slow, Dangerous curve ahead" etc


If the cost could be the factor in implementing all electronic traffic sign boards, then locating the Strategic Electronic Traffic Sign Boards on the road could be useful.

The Automobile can have a New feature integrated "Automatic Detection of Traffic Sign Boards by playing Sound files to the Driver".

Awaiting your reply,

Thanks & Regards,
Prashant S Akerkar

Answer
I would bet this technology is already in existence. I believe we are getting closer to cars that drive themselves.
Have you researched it on the internet?
I just googled "intelligent road signs" and came up with this: http://expressmilwaukee.com/article-3909-intelligent-traffic-signs.html
I bet you could find out even more and to what extent the technology has advanced if you researched deeper.
