The World Has Its First Smart Intersection
It was only a matter of time before smart cars led to smart intersections. And Honda has unveiled the first smart intersection at the corner of Main St. and 5th Avenue in Marysville, Ohio. It consists of cameras on top of all 4 stoplight posts and is named “vehicle-to-everything” or V2X. The cameras can sense emergency vehicles, people in walkways, and potential red-light violators and warn other drivers through their audio system. The downside of this system is it’s pretty expensive initially, but it could be less expensive if it is mass produced. Do you think it’ll take off?
