This is more or less for those of you that live in the area of Oxford, England. Or I suppose anyone that has information. I have recently been informed of a reclusive engineer that lives near Oxford, he worked for Mini Cooper for many years, and was interested in Robotics. When the new Cooper was designed he had input on it. He has since taken a Mini Cooper R50 and turned it into a robot. Not just any robot, but a robot that uses a danger sensing device that saves people in trouble in their cars. I have read a few stories about it, and have this website with a pic of the robot. But was curious if anyone knew of any greater detail. Mini R50 pic

Does it let out an audible warning, like:

"Danger! Danger! Brake and turn left, young Will Robinson!"

Actually the stories I have read state that the car is picked up and moved. Then afterwards there are two dents in the rear corner panels of the car. That according to a metallurgist says would have to be formed by something that can apply a lot of force to create the metal wrinkiling that occurs.

They include a guy that was sliding off a wet road, a family that had their car stall on train tracks with a commuter train coming, a guy that fell aleep at the wheel and woke up just as he was going off the road, and a couple others.

It's kind of interesting.
