France: In what could be termed as another spin-off from space to the automotive world, a spacecraft tool is now being used to improve car safety. The xception software is used to check the tiny computer controlling a car dashboard display. This advanced space technology is being extended to help guarantee the faultless performance of safety critical car systems like the brakes. Features like navigation, cruise control, parking sensors and engine and gearbox management, also driven by microcomputers, could be the next to be scrutinised.
