Software-defined networks hit the road

There's a new way of datacentre networking coming down the road: software-defined networking (SDN).

In the European Union alone, more than 40,000 people die every year in car accidents. Even if alcohol abuse or excessive speeds are certainly the major causes of these accidents, many crashes could be avoided if collision avoidance systems (CAS) were used. Such systems have been developed by researchers working for the REPOSIT project (RElative POSitioning for collIsion avoidance sysTems). Now, "European researchers have demonstrated in the lab a collision warning system for cars that could alert the driver several seconds in advance of an imminent impact." This system should not be expensive as it only involves popular GPS devices and an emerging car communication protocol called Vehicle2Vehicle (V2V), which is just a piece of software.
