Manufactures of smart vehicles should provide, free to the public,
RFID (or whatever) tags that will assist their vehicles in
pedestrians, bicycles, cats, dogs, etc. This would be another
in the computer's determination of what was actually there.
It should be standardized
so that you don't have to wear 20 pieces
of flair to be safer.

||This would greatly improve target discrimination - IFF for
||Would the tags carry "value" data ?Typically, a slow, elderly
pedestrian scores far fewer points than a young, agile cyclist
||Not free to the public. Some genius will put "cyclist" on a lamp-post. But I do like the theory, even if the current progress in machine vision renders it unnecessary.
||Re: data type completely anonymous, but could have
average speeds, etc. All data would go to Central, so tags
left out for a goof would be identified as stationary for x
number of minutes, etc., certain tags would be identified
as faster or slower, etc. one it started crunching the
numbers, tags would have their own characteristics;
anomalies should be weeded out pretty quickly.
||No. The sanctity of the pedestrian inalienable and cannot be embodied by a mere object.
||Is a car programmed to swerve and hit another car or
stationary object to avoid a pedestrian? Will the presence
of a tag override the optical or radar sensor data? Could a
carefully thrown flair result in a well planned accident?
