Some people see the gas tank as half empty. Some see it as half full. All I care is that I know where the next tankful is coming from...

Re: BMW Motorrad ConnectedRide, Advanced Safety Concept

I think it's the future of driving.

DARPA has been holding a Grand Challenge contest for many years that puts fully-autonomous vehicles through a designated off-road course. They've also expanded to an Urban Challenge, putting these driver-less vehicles through normal (deserted) city streets.

The BMW ConnectedRide concept is interesting in how much of it is based on bike-based sensors and automation, and how much relies on info communicated from other vehicles.

We've got a ways to go here, but it's coming.
