This is definitely news and I hope more people on HN see it. It hasn't been tested on roads yet, but it looks very promising.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2qpHl0GbQNI - interview with Ionut after the award.

http://seewithtongue.info/ - Ionut worked on this sensor that allows blind people to "see" on the computer, using their tongue. This was released only a year ago, and also "allows processing and adjusting the images taken from a webcam in real time using Artificial Intelligence." Ionut said something similar about how the car "sees," so I'm guessing that the car vision came out of this.

Please share any other info you find.
