I am not sure I would call it brilliant...it sounds to me like pushing the technology down the throats of consumers...I personally have no interests in using it, or even more importantly paying for it...and if most people are like me the value of car to car communication will be pretty slow...and what if they speak different languages!

As the article says, car-to-car will not assist with impaired drivers. One of the biggest causes of accidents where I live seems to still be impaired drivers. I wish there was some way to prevent a car from starting if a driver is under the influence or too tired. True, the passenger could "take the test" but I think it might hit many people with the truth that they are really *not* "OK to drive."

I think this is absolutely brilliant and too long in coming. I agree that the addition of it as an option will likely drive consumers to want it (think Consumer Reports, "The Safest Cars."). It will also be great for new drivers who are still working out the nuances of driving.

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.
