The doors seem really nice but I have to wonder how realiable they will be. Automatic doors on todays vans have manual over-rides to allow them to work if a sensor is out, etc. A manual override may be difficult with this design. It relies on a spring to hold the doors up and thus, there is energy storage available for a variety of mayhem.

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.
