Want To Avoid Atlanta Car Crashes? There May Be An App For That.

Italian researchers are working on an automatic accident detection system could reduce the number of vehicles involved in Atlanta highway pile-ups by as much as 40 percent. The internet app, which was described in the journal Computer Networks, is still in the research phase.  So far, it has only been tested on paper and in computer simulations.  But, this summer it will face the ultimate road test on the streets and highways of Los Angeles.  

 
The software works using an acceleration sensor. When the sensor detects an anomalous movement caused by accident, it sends warnings to other vehicles in the immediate area. The drivers are able to slow down, change lanes and avoid the crash.
 
This technology could be integrated into a car dashboard or navigation system.  In fact, researchers are also working on making cars internet ready. If road tests go well, it will be just a matter of time before similar applications could help prevent Atlanta traffic accidents.
 
If such technology could save even one of the more than 12,000 who die each year in Georgia car crashes, it will certainly be worthwhile.
