New digital-camera-based system can 'see' around corners

by Kat J. Mcalpine, Boston University

What if your car possessed technology that warned you not only about objects in clear view of your vehicle—the way that cameras, radar, and laser can do now in many standard and autonomous vehicles—but also warned you about objects hidden by obstructions. Maybe it's something blocked by a parked car, or just out of sight behind a building on a street corner.

This ability to see things outside your line of sight sounds like science fiction, but researchers have made strides in the last decade to bring what's called "non-line-of-sight imaging" to reality.
“A society does not ever die ‘from natural causes’, but always dies from suicide or murder – and nearly always from the former….”
