Mobileye

We got a demo from mobileye recently: http://mobileye.com/
A camera mounted on the windshield, detects cars, lanes and pedestrians, and warns you when you are getting to close or drifting out of your lane. The videos were very convincing. We got to test in real life too, although too briefly to really confirm what had seen in the videos.



The product costs about $1000, including installation. It can be installed in almost any car, but this needs to be done by a professional. Some governments give subsidies for it, and some insurance companies reduce your premium if you install one. Apparently some car manufacturers are planning to include the system in their new cars...
