Dr. Satwant Kaur, ‘First Lady of Emerging Technologies’, Predicts Great Advancements in Intelligent Transportation

Dr. Kaur,Chief Technologist - Innovation for HLS at Hewlett-
Packard, gives insights to the dramatic changes that may be just over the horizon.

Dr. Satwant Kaur makes predictions about technology that often sound more like science fiction than soon-to-be reality. However, her numerous awards and accolades prove that her forecasts concerning technology are far more fact than fiction. These ideas, when they come to fruition and widespread use, will change the everyday lives of humans all over the globe. Hot on the heels of her keynote address at the 2014 IT Expo in Miami in January, Dr. Kaur shares how we can expect driving to change as technology continues to advance.

Many car companies boast within their ads that the particular car being sold at any given time is so advanced that it can drive itself. While this oft-used line might draw responses of cynicism from consumers, soon the line will be able to be used quite literally. Intelligent Transportation Environments include many components, all of which will work together to keep drivers safe and roads clear and easy to navigate.

In this new automotive environment, Intelligence will be found in two main components: vehicles, and infrastructure. Intelligent vehicles will be able to monitor drivers for signs of weariness or alcohol use as well as recognize pedestrians, other vehicles, and traffic lanes to predict and avoid collisions. These vehicles will also be able to autonomously navigate, and plan routes in real time. Intelligent infrastructures will include Intelligent highways, traffic management, and road signs, all of which will promote safety and can alter to consider weather conditions, planned roadwork, etc. While some of these changes are still far off in terms of widespread use, they are imminent. As always,Dr. Kaur eases what will be a strange transition by preparing us for what technology has in store for our collective future.

Fog City Strangler

As 1958 nears an end San Francisco is being terrorized by a man who calls himself the “Fog City Strangler,” who preys on pretty young blonde women. The strangler announces each murder by sending a note and piece of the victim’s clothing to the local newspapers.

Angst mounts as the strangler continues to claim more victims. Private eye Sam Slater is worried that the Fog City Strangler may be eying his beautiful blonde wife, TWA stewardess Amelia Ryan. His anxiety is further fueled when TWA launches an advertising campaign with Amelia’s picture on a series of billboards plastered all over the city. Sam fears the billboards may attract too much attention--the wrong kind of attention.

Meanwhile, Sam and Amelia are hired to try to find the missing daughter of a wealthy dowager who fears she has lost her only child. The missing woman went for a walk with her dog on Stinson Beach, near San Francisco, and seemingly vanished into thin air. The woman’s husband arrived at their beach house and found the dog running loose but there was no trace of his wife. The police are stumped in their investigation.

As Sam and Amelia look into the disappearance of the woman on the beach they discover that nothing is as it seems at first glance. On a stormy night a shadowy figure sets fire to the beach house where the couple is staying--hoping to stop their investigation.

Greg Messel’s Fog City Strangler is a stand-alone thriller but is part of the Sam Slater Mystery Series--Last of the Seals, Deadly Plunge and San Francisco Secrets.
