But cars with "semi-autonomous" features, such as collision-avoidance radar
that maintains a safe distance from the car ahead, are already on the market.
One company, The Armonk in New York, said the process will enable chip operation speeds of 200 GHz, providing advanced communications technologies such as automobile collision-avoidance radar
. According to IBM the chip process is available to customers immediately and is being used by Sierra Monolithics and Tektronix.
Telematics, high-end audio and security, collision-avoidance radar
-- it's all here.
It should be useful for monitoring air quality, controlling pollution, and improving collision-avoidance radar
. Another possibility is better "free space" point-to-point communication -- "like fiber-optic communication," Faist says, "but without all the fibers."
