Behavioral change needed too

I am terrified as well when I see drivers who are obviously texting, checking email, applying makeup and all sorts of other things behind the wheel. While I applaud the advent of vision to help make us all safer drivers, we at the same time need to find better ways to discourage this kind of distracted behavior to begin with.

Machines that can see

Jeff, I am always a big fan of your advocacy on "Machines that can see." It's great to see vison-based automotive safety systems are coming on line.

That said, when more and more machine vision-equipped automotive safety systems put to real practices, I wonder what specific lessons the embedded vision community is learning. 

Are there any learnings -- or unexpected or unintended consequences--you can share with us?What challenges still remain for the industry solve?

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
