Honda Displays its Range of Communication

At the Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress in New York, Honda and Acura demonstrated an advanced system that promises to radically improve traffic safety. Essentially, the system allows cars to talk to each other. If the computer in your car recognizes the potential for an accident, it'll warn you, and if you don't respond the system can slow or even stop the car. Honda used an Acura RL for the demonstration and called the system "Dedicated Short Range Communications". If the car receives a signal that indicates another vehicle is not going to stop for a redlight, the car's computer will warn the driver and, if needed, slow the car. The system uses some of the technology that's already in place in the 2009 Acura RL's Collision Mitigation Braking System (CMBS) and active cruise control.
