Smart cars -- towards proactive elimination of car accidents

Thanks to a posting of Rainer von Ammon in the CEP forum,  a "killer" application of proactive computing,  is the MIT smart cars that predict human behavior of other drivers and intended to eliminate accidents.  This is intended for the interim period where some of the car will be autonomic and some manually driven.  The rate of success is high, still not perfect.   Actually this is the opposite of a killer application - it is a life saver. 
I guess that in the future, all cars will be driven by computers and this will be able to eliminate the accidents (or minimize them),  since human behavior cannot be totally predictable,  More on ability to predict events - later.

Hi Opher, see some ideas we could do together or with the EP-TS under

Hello Ranier.

I am not sure that EPTS is the appropriate forum, but I can see what the other partners think.

In any event, I believe that research into synergies of event processing with areas that are outside corporate IT -- robotics, automated cars, biology -- should be a major focus in the research community. The business community will join in the next step.

While the FDA has not advised or approved the HCG for weight regimen, it is legal to ship it to any country
for personal use and a lot of people actually inject HCG on their own at home.
, the FDA banned the selling of HCG even the homeopathic model.
It is also essential that you have to include those foods that taste good
in the diet plan.
