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.

It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
People who want to take advantage of solar energy in their homes no longer need to install a bolt-on solar-panel system atop their houses -- they can integrate solar-energy-harvesting shingles directing into an existing or new roof instead.
