Honda recently announced that it has successfully developed the first traffic detection technology in the world.
The technology will be able to detect areas of vehicle congestion and alert drivers of the necessary acceleration or deceleration to avoid trailing vehicles too closely, thus alleviating traffic jams. Affordable Motors, a valued Honda dealer in Brooklyn, NY, anticipates the full development and launch of the traffic detection program.
Through intensive research, Honda analyzed the acceleration and deceleration patterns that contribute to traffic congestion. One vehicle has the ability to influence patterns in traffic based on how fast or slow it is driven.
According to a Honda press release, the automaker worked with the Research Center for Advanced Science and Technology at the University of Tokyo to test a system equipped with the technology. Results determined that the technology increased speed by around 23% on average, and increase overall trailing vehicle efficiency by 8%.
The automaker plans to start road testing the traffic detection technology in Italy and Indonesia in May and July. Lessening traffic congestion will improve fuel economy, and drivers will be able to connect to servers that will sync with cruise control systems in the event of congestion. Monitoring cruise control will allow vehicles to keep a safe and efficient distance. Vehicle collisions, CO2 emissions and arrival delays will all be decreased as a result of Honda’s latest technology.
