Using wireless networks to avoid car crashes

European researchers are working on a project named I-WAY, an acronym for 'Intelligent co-operative system in cars for road safety.' The goal of this project is to develop new automotive safety systems that will alert drivers to potential hazards by using data obtained from in-vehicle sensing systems, the road infrastructure and other road users. With this system, drivers will receive warnings and alerts for weather conditions, traffic jams or accidents, so that they could avoid crashes. The I-WAY project started in February 2006 and should be completed in January 2009 for a total cost of 4.59 million euro, with a EU funding of 2.6 million euro. But read more...

The 3.83 million euro EU-funded MORYNE project was completed in March 2008 with a test in Berlin, Germany. During this test, the researchers 'equipped city buses with environmental sensors and cameras, allowing the vehicles to become transmitters of measurements, warnings and live or recorded videos to anyone allowed to access the data.'
