The Connected Car Future
Interesting article in the Economist about the future of the connected car. The article talks about the stuff we know - GPS navigation, Inrix traffic probe data helping get us around traffic, but then ventures into how Vehicle to Vehicle (V2V) communication might work as well as Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) communication might work too. Toll transponders are the most obvious use for V2I communication, but you might start getting a network effect of communication between vehicles to share not only traffic, but traffic signal colors, emergency vehicle alerts and sudden braking situations.
