The past couple months I've had many hours experience with both Subaru's EyeSight and Tesla's AutoPilot. I plan on posting my thoughts about them soon.

Tesla system is powered by MobileEye, an Israeli company, and uses their latest generation EyeQ3 chip.

This video is really interesting, and talks about what is happening now in computer assisted driving, what's about to happen in the very near future, and what's coming 2 to 4 years from now.

The video clips he demos are really amazing as it shows what the computer identifies in a chaotic and busy city driving environment. It's wild to see every pedestrian walking down the sidewalk detected and assigned a unique identifier number floating above their heads with their trajectories predicted. I also like the part about deep learning, using SkyNet...I mean AlexNet, to figure out the driving path when there are no lane markers and figure out what every pixel in the image data is.
Driving is going to be radically different, starting this year if you have the right car and for all cars over the next 3 or 4 years.

The science fiction future has arrived.

What you can do when you turn off the traction control on a Tesla Model S.

Thus far I've only turned it off once. You have click through and agree to a couple popup disclaimers. LOL!

Taught an online RHEV/ovirt class this week for a Guru Labs Linux training class. Fun and very cool.

48 cores
15 systems w/24GB ram each
10 GbE for iSCSI Target with Qty 2 960GB SSD drives

52 virtual machines running that in turn were running Qty 13 RHEV clusters with 5 VMs (nested virt, how awesome!)

I learned how and wrote two different vdsm hooks and we wired up our RLABs interface to front the whole thing so students just needed an HTML5 compliant browser to connect.
