App To Warn You When You Are About To Be Hit By A Car
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. In the case of pedestrians, the graphic alert even lets the driver know whether the walker is on the phone, texting, or listening to music...Pedestrians receive a notice, too, thanks to a popup alert on their phones and an accompanying alarm."
