About the Infinity video,
I think Waze (– Google) CAN provides the unique collision avoidance system
if they have an intention to do so.
Waze got 1 billion dollars funds from Google, so
Step-1). Acquire wireless CAN adaptor and app vendor.
Step-2). Built-in unique app to the existing Waze navigation app.
Sudden braking triggers to transmit emergency signal to other waze drivers
nearby within 1 second or so through telephony networks.
Step-3). Drivers who are driving few hundred yards behind get the signal
driver can take action to slow down / change lane, etc. to avoid potential
While car manufacturers and Tier-1 players are wondering to deal with
I think Waze should just DO it !^-^!
How do you think?

Subject: Re: [Silicon-Valley-Automotive-Open-Source] What technology
is behind this?
Yeah, I found that just after I sent the message, but it still
makes me wonder. If the Google car has to use a very expensive lydar system
(that doesn't see through cars) how can this system work? Is it just motion
tracking at the tire/road level? You wouldn't need any object clarity to tell
that a tracked object stops. I would think that you'd get a huge blind spot from
the vehicle directly in front of you because cars have such... strong
electromagnetic properties, what with them being all metal and so forth.
