EyeQ, will your car be smarter than you?


Your car is about to get a lot smarter. EyeQ is a computer chip developed by MobilEye which works with cameras mounted all around a vehicle. The data is analyzed and depending on the conditions and parameters the system can then do things like alert you to a car in your blind spot, pedestrians crossing, tighten a seat belt before a crash, apply more brake pressure if a crash seems evident, only deploy one air bag if there is just one passenger, things a computer can do faster then us meat based entities. We suspect that these types of systems will be standard equipment in cars in the next decade, as usual luxury cars first, then everyone else. Mobileye has some cool videos on their site of the system in action, check'em out.
