I agree, an ideal solution would be to stop the car and remove it from the road. I believe there are some systems out there now that will make noises to wake people up if they detect the eyes closing for too long.

I liked the idea of the pre-programmed walking stick to guide the elderly to a particular destination. And yes, if the charging could be provided by the walking action itself - would be nice.

As far as the alerting the police about the about to be dozing driver, it is better to alert the driver himself by some vibrator or a shrill sound - much easier isn't it than overloading the police department?

Fascinating stuff from Fujitsu's research lab. Can you imagine if police started getting warnings from cars that their drivers are about to fall asleep at the wheel. I wonder how many of "sleepers" a highway patrol department would get in a night and how they'd deal with it; it brings up all sorts of bandwidth issues. It would be better if the car stopped itself.


Love the digital walking stick. It needs to be powered by the walking, and not rely on traditional charging.

Mostly clothes that don't fit anymore. I don't know how much of this is hype and how much really is pure resaearch, but I have to say that it is nice to see companies starting to look beyond the current quarter again. If more of them can start to bring back some of the audacity of Xerox PARC and others maybe we can start making things interesting again. Kudos to Google, Virgin, and others as well for pushing the envelope.
