Honda Demonstrates Motorcycle 2 CAR Communication

Honda demonstrated a motorcycle-to-car communication system that could be used to transmit positioning warnings to nearby vehicles as the rider approaches an intersection or if the vehicles are headed along a collision path. The system was demonstrated as part of the CAR 2 CAR Communication Consortium event taking place at the Opel Test Track in Dudenhofen, Germany, from 22-23 October 2008.

Honda's ad hoc wireless networking system generates warnings to riders and drivers of other vehicles by continuous exchange of positioning data from satellite GPS sources. The demonstration will exhibit the interoperability of the Honda life-saving system which facilitates communication with vehicles from 8 other manufacturers.http://www.honda.comhttp://www.car-to-car.org/
