Kinda takes the "sport" out of the equation when you know what's coming at you. Pretty cool, though.

Next up is the the Honda AST 'Automatic Steering Technology' that will steer the bike away from approaching vehicles that the laser determines to be approaching too quickly. It also will take over steering if lean angle is not correct for the radius of the turn, as determined by the Honda ATT 'Automatic Turning technology'. Combined with ABS, traction control, airbags, and the Honda ATW 'Automatic Training Wheel' technology, which deploys training wheels if road speed drops too low, will allow the rider to fall asleep and still not fall down or hit anything. Nice.

Should the rider continue to make too many dangerous maneuvers the onboard Honda(TM) Computer Monitoring system will activate its GPS steering function and the rider will be taken to the nearest Honda Automobile Dealer(r) where his bike will be automatically traded for a new Honda Car.. price based on a Honda Automatic Financial Assessment of the rider's total debt/credit standing.

That's certainly useful. I'd better run out and get one of those before I get run-over or something............

The maritime industry is well into a long-term plan to put a similar traffic management control system on commercial ships and boats. I think it's pretty smart; forget trying to centralize the system like the FAA; with computing and communication systems as cheap and reliable as they are, there's no need.

From the IEEE:
"Marine shipping is collectively viewed as a group of intelligent agents, each possessing resources of sensing, communication, information processing, and decision-making. The marine traffic control problem is considered that of achieving organized, consistent behavior of the group by exploiting the knowledge and resources possessed by agents in the group, and the marine traffic control system is treated as a distributed problem-solving network. Ships are all processing nodes in the network, and they are connected with each other by some communication protocol. The approach is embodied in a system called DIPSACOM. Organizational structuring and an expectation-based negotiation mechanism for achieving effective cooperation between ships are elaborated."

DIPSACOM: could'a picked a better name.

Actually there's a much cheaper alternative. Just stick sarnali out on the bridge wing with a pair of binoculars and a bull horn.
