MIT Says Algorithm Can Predict Red Light Runners

No disrespect to our big-brained friends at MIT but who needs an algorithm to predict this? We all know exactly when another car is going to run a red light a smack into you...exactly one day after your insurance lapses. stick out tongue

In a paper that will appear in the journal IEEE Transactions on Intelligent Transportation Systems, Jonathan How, professor of aeronautics and astronautics at MIT, and three of his colleagues say they have come up with an algorithm that can predict whether an oncoming car is about to run a red light one or two seconds before a possible collision.
