Smart cars and smart roads are becoming a reality. We can hope to see more and more highly intelligent cars that enable us to detect danger sooner and assist in avoiding collisions. Perhaps in the future, a small dvr will be included in vehicles so that they would record what happens on the road as evidence during accidents. Sam -

In intelligent transportation, , surveillance systems also can be used not only inside cars, but also outside cars for improving road safety. 

For example, for the highway system in China, there is a highway tunnel surveillance control room project which comprised of a video surveillance system, an emergency operations system, a vehicle recognition system, and a traffic management system. And crucially at the center, a video wall was needed in the main control room that was able to display all data and video coming from these systems in real time, with advanced warning capabilities that could draw an operators'attention to the most critical images.

In this way, it's easier to control the traffic in tunnel, and people can react immediately when accident happens.

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.
