There is work over at Honda on spatial analysis for cars.
Honda believes Canesta's chips could help drivers know how close they are to other parked cars, pedestrians, and get other similar, useful information. Automakers are also examining ultrasonics (sound waves) or stereoscopic technologies to give drivers better information about their surroundings.
This is by no means unprecedented as an application or concept, but it appears to gain popularity among manufacturers that don't focus on high-end vehicles.
