Does this mean that we will be able to have infra-red headlights with ranges as good as we have presently? or perhaps much better? Of course we would also need a good IR camera or two, and an adequate HUD to go with it. However the reliability would need to be better than any present vehicular system, since loss of forward vision in a vehicle is subject to very large amounts of criticism. Really, driving with a head-down display could be a very interesting experience.

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.
