Intelligent cars fitted with aircraft-style black boxes that can send video footage and information about driving behaviour during accidents to the police and insurance companies are being developed by computer scientists.
The car, which is being developed by researchers at computer chip giant Intel, will record information about the vehicle speed, steering and braking along with video footage from inside and outside the vehicle.
This would be automatically sent to police and insurance companies in the event of an accident to make it easier to determine the cause of car crashes and identify the person responsible.
The device forms part of an intelligent car envisaged by researchers at computer chip giant Intel. They are developing technology that will transform cars into smart vehicles that are able to detect dangers on the road and even take over control from motorists.
They have been in discussions with car manufacturers about developing cars that are permanently connected to the internet and other vehicles using wireless technology.
Camera systems that can recognise street signs and then take over control of a car if the motorist tries to drive the wrong way up a one-way street, for example, are being developed for use in vehicles.

Vehicles already have a 'black box' and they have for quite some time. This is nothing new, to be honest. I see a conspiracy in the making here. It's no secret that certain elements want to tax us 'by the mile' and this may be the technology they'll use.
Keep a close watch on this one, folks.

I love how these people keep shoving their big brother phallus further and further down our throats. Clever how they disguise it as a reason for implementation- to report accidents. Ya I might take up bike riding sooner than I expect to..
