App To Warn You When You Are About To Be Hit By A Car

Carmakers are developing technologies to alert drivers and pedestrians if they are about to collide.

Honda is developing new technology using Dedicated Short-Range Communications (DSRC) to enable Vehicle-To-Pedestrian (V2P) safety alerts.

"[W]hen a vehicle equipped with Honda's new technologies senses an oncoming pedestrian or motorcycle, a warning sounds in the car.
