Most modern fighter aircraft are fly by wire and many cars are getting there. They are now developing a system to prevent fighters from crashing into each other by monitoring, predicting and shairing their flightpath with other friendly forces. If downtown traffic is hectic, imagine a 3D, supersonic fur ball of multi-million dollar aircraft and missles all manovering to kill one another. This system "reserves" a probable cone of airspace infront of the aircraft and pilots of fighters that are intruding in this space will find their aircraft move by themselves out of the airspace at 5g. This only works with good guy's because the bad guys don't want you to know where they''ll be.
I've often thought of a motorcycle "fly by wire" system, brought on by watching the speeder bikes on the planet Endor. Would you surrender direct control of you're bike to the compuer if the combined radar/ computer array could predict the fastest path though trafffic? You'd set the direction but the computer would have the final say and by predicting probable paths, and maximum accel/decell/cornering values, plot you throught with mathamatic precision. We already do this but with very limited info and with predictabilable results.
What do you all think?
