This is what innovation is all about. Sophisticated technology making our lives simple. There will be a day where almost every function of the car can be made to be touch sensitive or through motion control. This brings about a new breed of security that is required. If the engine could be started without manual input, and car doors can open when you are in the proximity, what is going to stop hackers from creating a device that can hack either of these functions? I definitely do not want anyone else in control of the various car parts on my vehicle. Thomas - http://www.carid.com

I like the passive detection ability. Much better than having to carry a car clicker. You can just put an RFID tag on the key and the car can scan it when you approach. Plus if it is not you, the car can call for help. Cool.

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.
