Intelligent Vehicle" for this academic year's presentations.

This particular talk will be by consultant Richard Bishop, who will
give an overview of ongoing research and product development
activities for cars, trucks, buses, and specialty vehicles
(military and industrial) worldwide. A view will be offered of the
expected deployment rollout of these services, any issues and
barriers that are foreseen, as well as how this "next wave" of
intelligent transportation systems will affect our lives.
From what I've seen on the related web sites, much has been done
in the areas of sensors and system concepts, but little is said
about software implementation plans. It looks like this could be
a huge new niche for Ada. Check out the links. Any comments?
