BMW and Volkswagen both are well known in market as well as very famous for the service and the look that is very unique. These two brands have their perticular injection of prototype that attracts the people towards it. Accidental warning message also avaialable in those cars that gives you the warning which protects you. Few days back I have a faced an accident that completely smashed my front side of my BMW car that destroyed the look. In oreder to repair it I have visited the repairing center and got very service.BMW Repair Atlanta

This morning my car was complaining to me that the gas cap was loose. It wasn't. This afternoon, the indication went away. That is a comparatively simple sensor, and this isn't. I'm not saying that this is something we shouldn't do, but we shouldn't take that 'human oversight' thing too lightly for a while. Larry M.

I'd like to know how many accidents are associated with a driver making a sudden decision to change their current trajectory (e.g. turning right in the right lane and then suddenly changing their mind and deciding to go straight). I'd predict that an effective means to alert the driver (and adjacent vehicles) of such changes in plan would go a long way towards reducing accidents.

This is truly exciting, especially for those of us who are in areas where "major" roads with high speeds are intersected by other slower speed roads without adequate on-ramps. Hopefully it won't be long until we'll just be able to tell the vehicle where we want to go and leave the driving mostly to it, with oversight of course.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST
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.
