Valeo LaneVue Lane Departure Warning System (http://rbi.ims.ca/4919-545). First introduced on the Infiniti FX, and now available on the 2006 Infiniti M35 & M45 models, the Lane Departure Warning (LDW) system uses a camera mounted behind the windshield and proprietary software algorithms to monitor the lane markings in front of the vehicle. The system identifies lane changes, when the turn signal is not used, as an unintentional lane departure and sounds an audible warning to alert the driver. Valeo engineers worked with Iteris to develop a video system that includes a CMOS camera with Integrated Signal Processing.

A Tokyo company, Miraisens Inc., has unveiled a device that allows users to move virtual 3D objects around and "feel" them via a vibration sensor. The device has many applications within the gaming, medical, and 3D-printing industries.
In the last few years, use of CFD in building design has increased manifolds. Computational
fluid dynamics is effective in analyzing the flow and thermal properties of air within spaces. It can be used in buildings to find the best measures for comfortable temperature at low energy use.
