WONDERFUL WORLD OF SCIENCE: NEWS: CARS TALKING TO CARS

Now the good news is that U.S. has launched a programme which is the largest field test of the ability of cars talking to cars one another to prevent accidents.About 4 out of 5 accidents may be avoided if this test is successful and introduced. U.S.Transporatation Secretary Ray LaHood was in Ann Arbor,Michigan to launch the programme yesterday.There are 3,000 cars involved in the test. Cars will have wireless devices and there will be wi-fi embedded in intersections and traffic signs. Over 32,000 people died in the U.S. due to traffic accidents but with the introduction of this preventive measure about 80% or majority of the accidents can be prevented, it is hoped.
