And I changed my tag: Now it reads "Struma down, SVM FTW!" I like radi's things with Struma motorway (E79), but I prefer mine ones with the Catalan town of Sant Vicenç de Montalt, located about 40 km NE of Barcelona.

It looks like a regular new French plate that lost the right euroband.

Something similar happened in Eindhoven (NL), some time ago:



This was an access to an underground bicycle garage...

Does this means that a restaurant nearby has a lunch for just 24 € for 9 courses?

Bicycle garage with stairs?
The plate seems Belgian, right?

That's normal, it is apparently too steep to allow safe bicycle riding. There are channels beside stairs to push bicycles into/out of garage.

Eliminating Inefficiencies

A ghost car is driving through the streets of San Francisco. An ordinary mint-green Toyota Prius is negotiating the sharp, downhill curves at the end of Lombard Street. But there is no driver. Instead, there are numerous cameras installed on the Toyota that scan its surroundings in all directions. Processors calculate how far away obstacles, traffic lights and pedestrians are from the vehicle and, based on this information, they send commands to levers that push the gas pedal, press on the brake and turn the steering wheel. It's a car that has essentially taught itself to drive.

The vehicle is part of a revolution being spearheaded by a team of 15 researchers at the headquarters of Internet giant Google in the Silicon Valley town of Mountain View. The team is headed by Sebastian Thrun, a native of the western German city of Solingen who has been a professor of artificial intelligence at Stanford University for the last eight years.

Thrun is working on a vision of the automobile of the future, one in which people will eventually no longer have to own their own cars. Thrun cites some enlightening figures. The average car, he says, actually spends only 3 percent of its life in motion, while it stands around doing nothing for the remaining 97 percent of the time. The average street, Thrun says, is only used at 4 percent of its capacity, and yet new roads are constantly being built.

"It's about eliminating society's inefficiencies," Thrun says
