The new features on cars are really cool. I looked at a Ford Edge a couple of months ago. The blind spot detection is a feature I would really like to have. I wish the drivers that keep cutting me off had that feature too.

Blind spot detection certainly sounds it has potential to save lives, prevent injuries, and reduce collision damage. What about adding in a feature to flash a warning light on the side of the vehicle that is about to be hit to alert the driver in the blind spot to back off. Having both drivers alerted by the system to the impending collision might further reduce accidents.

How "safe" is the controller to be used in the automobile safety system? Is the controller compliant with the industrial or automotive safety standards such as IEC61508?

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.
