This technology pertains to a system that uses radar, lidar, and/or cameras to GPS map out objects such as government vehicles, or persons based on facial recognition, and alert other drivers or operators of the technology of upcoming waypoints. An example would be a police car mapping out the vehicles, with their pictures and license plates stored in the system, and the maps on other users’ systems in their vehicles or other systems would show those assets and provide details about them if necessary. This could be used to track stolen cars, or track criminals that are detected based on facial recognition, and the map would update based on new impressions, to track movements, locations, direction, and speed, among other metrics. This same technology could also be used by civilians to alert fellow motorists where police cars are on their driving route, so that the drivers ensure that they are following all laws such as speed limits. This type of technology is to become more prevalent in the future, when more and more vehicles become connected to the Internet wherever they go.
