Not sure were to post it but I went car shopping with one of my daughters looking for a new car. The car we got kinda blew us both away with a feature it had. It was something called "EyeSight" on a 2014 Subaru Legacy Limited. I use a pair of cameras (one on each side of rear view mirror) and optical recognition software to warn of lane changes, adjust cruise control to traffic, (and you can set following distance) and automatic braking if you fail to. They did their homework as it worked sweet. Not really a radio thing but I admire the technology.

It is neat.  When it works.  However bug splatter and snow tend to render it useless.  Not so much a design flaw, just impossible to prevent stuff from covering up the sensor.

Maybe Subaru should build it's own version of a Flex type SDR contest transceiver since they now have the technology to prevent pile ups.

They are in path of wipers so window in front of them is kept clean. Rain did not seem to effect it. The lenses are about 1 inch in diameter and wide aperture a likely do not even "see" window in focal range.

Cool, the company I work for generally has put them in the front bumper, so it gets splattered with everything.  The only complaints I've had with them is not that the radar cruise doesn't work, but when there is a malfunction with the sensor, the cruise can't be used like the regular old cruise we are all used to, it just doesn't work.

I just love those companies that have a glowing website with all the details. A buy now button that wants all your info instead of just giving a price. That's when I pass on by....
