HAARP - More than 200 miles east of Anchorage, Alaska, is the Pentagon's High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program, officially an enormous experiment to heat the ionosphere with radio waves. But conspiracy theorists believe the project is a weapon to bring down aircraft and missiles by lifting sections of the atmosphere, cause earthquakes or even a huge weather modification machine.

A safety device which prevents drivers using mobile phones by automatically intercepting calls and text messages when they are moving has been unveiled.

The software tells callers the person they are trying to reach is driving and asks them to leave a message.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents

Canadian firm Aegis Mobility hopes its system will become available via a monthly subscription fee.

The Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) says drivers are four times as likely to crash using a phone.

Phone fine

The DriveAssist system can also tell callers where the person they are trying to reach is located by using satellite navigation technology.

Motorists using mobile phones caused 25 fatal, 64 serious and 259 slight accidents in 2007, according to the Department for Transport.

It has been illegal to use a mobile phone while driving since December 2003 - with offenders facing a £60 on-the-spot fine and three points on their licence.

A RoSPA spokesperson told BBC News: "Our advice to drivers is to switch off their mobile phones when they get behind the wheel and let voicemail do its job."

Meanwhile, a survey by motoring group RAC shows almost half of drivers are seriously distracted by in-car technology - rising to 55% for 17-to-24-year-olds.

The most distracting gadgets were radios and CDs, followed by mobile phones and satnav systems which each put off around a third of drivers.

Heating and air conditioning controls distracted 35% in the survey of 1,034 motorists.

Anti-locking brake systems (ABS) and immobilisers are fitted as standard on new cars, yet only 70% of drivers knew they had ABS and only 68% knew they had immobilisers.

The Department for Transport says distractions account for 12% of all road accidents. In 2007 that amounted to 75 fatal, 411 serious and 2,517 slight accidents.

The RAC survey also looked to the next 20 years of motoring and revealed:

 • 23% believe drivers will be able to simply input an end destination then sit back and enjoy the ride.

 • 35% think cars will be able to "talk" to each other to pinpoint and avoid traffic.

 • 71% believe cars will be able to tell you when you are exceeding the speed limit with half predicting automatic prevention.

 • 60% predict fingerprint, voice or breath recognition will replace keys to start a car.

 RAC's technical director David Bizley said: "In-car technology has come a long way since the late 80s. The advances have fallen into two camps - active and passive.

"Active technologies such as in-car entertainment are not always positive as they can cause driver distraction, while passive technologies, such as anti-locking brake systems (ABS), are undervalued as they are not fully understood or deemed less important as they come on automatically."

POLICE DEPARTMENT OFFERED TO USE CITY GOVT’S COMMAND & CONTROL SYSTEM.

13 Jun 2008:

Karachi. June 13:  The City Government Karachi has offered police department to use its command and control centre, recently established at the civic centre, for controlling crimes, terrorist attacks and monitoring traffic.

The offer was made by City Nazim Syed Mustafa Kamal during a briefing to media representatives on Command and Control Centre on Friday. The project which is first of its kind in Pakistan will be officially inaugurated on Sunday. Under the system full video monitoring of two model corridors (signal free corridor-I&II) of the city will be made through a sophisticated wireless video security surveillance network while the system will be gradually extended to other areas of the city.

The city government has acquired all technical expertise and equipments for this project. The first phase of the project has been completed with a cost of Rs.1100 millions under which 54 cameras have been installed on both signal free corridors and the centre has begun working on experimental basis.

Giving more details of the project the City Nazim said that latest Wimax technology has been used in this system while the experts from United States and Europe were hired for training of the staff. Within two weeks the system will also be linked with a most modern ambulance system so that in case of any emergency it could be dispatched to the site of the accident. The ambulances have been purchased from Mercedes Benz Company.

Nazim Karachi said the latest Wimax Technology has been used for cameras and all technology hardware and software have been imported from USA and European countries. In order to provide fool proof security and reliability to the system the whole network is on a licensed band from PTA which is used for public safety around the world. He said that the physical security and surveillance is the front line against criminal and terrorism threats, now a days it is the top priority for every government to provide the safe and secure environment for their citizens and guard its infrastructure by adopting any available technology that can be used to resolve the traffic congestion and also help to reduce street crimes.

The City Nazim said that the project was launched in January 2008 and now its first phase has been completed. The whole project took only six months to complete with all international standards. He said that it was a hard job to do as being first of its kind in Pakistan it was much difficult to introduce a new thing.

The wireless network coverage area is 36km with fiber optic back up. Mainly 54 cameras have been installed to cover two main arteries of Karachi known as Signal Free Corridor-I(from SITE to Karzas and Sharae Faisal) and Signal Free Corridor-II( from Nagan Chowrangi to Drigh Road and Sharae Faisal)

Nazim Karachi said that the main objectives of this system were to improve the physical security of citizen thorough video security cameras and to monitor the traffic flow and clear congestion on the roads through worldʼs best available technology. To Guard the CDGK infrastructure such as flyovers, underpasses and bridges and closely coordinate and work with traffic police along with Sindh crime Police in command and control centre to respond to law and order situation effectively were other objectives of the project. He said that the next phase of this project will include installation of the LPR (License Plate Recognition) Biometric Face Recognition and RFID system after which it would become very easy to identify the movements on streets of individuals, cars and other type of transit measure while it will be difficult for anyone to evade the law enforcement agencies.
