(AP) A co- pilot in the form of a com- puter that will tell a driver how to manoeuvre his car is undergoing research at a branch of the University of Missouri. The research group at Hol- la's Transportation Institute is testing a driver-assistance system that will use a small computer and a highly-sensi- tive sensor installed in an pu- tomobile. It would pick up in- formation stored in magnets in the road. The system may eventually tell a driver such things as whether lie is to the right or left in a larifi, whether the road curves ahead, whether there are icy spots coming up, and how well he is driving over-all. Tile clu'ef investigator on the project is Dr. Ken Duni- pace, associate professor of electrical engineering. The system may work in several different ways, he says, but probably something like this: Magnets mil be installed in the read at a certain spacing. The sensor in the car will pick up road information from the magnets and feed it into a computer. The information will be relayed to the driver visually via arrows and dots projected on the windshield. Dunipace says the arrows will point straight ahead if the car is in proper position, to the left if a left turn is neces- sary and to the right if a right turn is upcoming. And the dots will outline the road ahead. New information could he fed into the magnets each day by highway saiety officials, such as what spots are icy after a winter storm.

There are more than a billion tons of high grade coking coal here in Canada's largest coal mine, which has just been dedicated in th3 southeast comer of British Columbia. People have known about this fabulous coal deposit for years; but they didn't have the market or the technology to get the coal out and into the mainstream of international commerce. Today, Kaiser Resources Is putting new fife into these historic old mines. The project called for big equipment: mammoth 200-ton tracks, the largest walking drag line in Canada, and CP Rail's unit train operation. These "perpetual motion" trains hooking up 11 88 haul the coal700 miles to cur new bulk loading facility at the Roberts Bank superport, just south of Vancouver. The project called for big money. Kaiser Resources has already invested million. The project called for big experience. Long experience in the production and shipment of coking coal and iron ore for steelmaking has helped us to move this coal into world markets. What does this mean to Canada? More jobs, new houses in new communities, more lax revenue, bigger and better transportation equipment and port facilities, a big new life for an old and a billion dollars in foreign exchange to help our balance of payments over the next fifteen years. The coal fields of British Columbia are Inly on the threshold of becoming avast new source of energy for the world. 1535 Bentall Centra Two 555 Burrard Street, Vancouver 1, B.C.
