Robot makes you watch the road

Toyota Computer Makes You Watch the Road

From the article: If you are going to that much trouble, you might as well have the robot drive the car.

I agree, this is seems sort of strange. How do they determine the amount of time between turning one's head and the buzzer going off? I myself am in the habit of always looking over my shoulder when I change lanes (because of the blind spot). Would that trigger the beeping noise?

It seems to me that this system is liable to annoy people more than help them. But I guess we'll see what the reviews are like...
