Cars That ‘Talk’ to Each Other Getting Safety Test in Michigan

From Los Angeles Times

“About 3,000 vehicles equipped to share information about their speed and location have hit the roads in Ann Arbor, Mich., as part of a research project into so-called connected vehicles.

“The wireless technology enables the vehicles and the traffic infrastructure to “talk” to each other in real time to help avoid crashes and improve traffic flow, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation, which is running the test in conjunction with the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute.”
