It is amazing the # of Fatalities has dropped from over 55,000 to about 35,000 in the last 35 years.  Both my parents had injuries from driving or riding in cars with no seat belts(the standard at the time)

Very interesting piece, Junko. I wonder what automotive seat belt systems engineers are working on: the car won't move until all the passengers where seat beats? Or the seatbelts automatically latch themselves?

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.
