Auto Bonar

Bluetooth-augmented parking sonar
  [vote for,

You may be parallel-parking in a space, so why not use the parking sensors of the cars either side of the space to produce more detailed images of the manoeuvre?

Bluetooth engages with the sensors in cars in the vicinity and coordinates their pings, and DSP on the host car produces a 3-D image for the driver.

The image is projected onto the rear window (when reverse is engaged) or the front windscreen when driving forward as a form of head-up display.

       Hackers of the world...unicode. For a fee that represents a percentage of the insurance excess, of course.

       Can we have the sub sonar ping sound?

       If the Traffic Code were amended to require this, that'd be a Bonar Law, I suppose?

       I love how you spell maneuver.   

       would the parking space have a curb camera? I'm always hitting the curb.

       ma·noeu·vre. n. & v. Chiefly British. Variant of maneuver.
Given as an acceptable spelling in many online dictionaries, and the one I've got on this computer. I don't have a proper (i.e. bound paper) dictionary to hand.
