Knight Rider mentioned in Scientific American

Post by Michael Pajaro » Tue Feb 07, 2012 6:49 pm

A friend of mine sent me this clipping from the July 2011 issue of Scientific American. The article talks about new developments in self-driving automobiles.

"It's not quite KITT, the artificially intelligent Trans Am that starred alongside David Hasselhoff in the 1980's television show Knight Rider, but a newly patented computerized driving system takes a step toward the car as driving companion."

"Soon all that will separate your average driver from the 1980s-era Michael Knight will be a 'turbo boost' and a few cans of hairspray."

Its amazing how anyone can look at most of todays cars technology and trace most of it back to the inspiration known as KITT. :) Its a good feeling.

I want two things to be in place with all this safety equipment.

1) A backup that is smart enough to know if anything goes wrong with the primary and can take over in a split second.

2) None of this equipment should be able to access the internet. Never, ever. Isolate it all.
