The Urban Vehicle Grid

I came across some exciting research work that the UCLA CS team are doing  around “the urban vehicle grid”, a vehicle-to-vehicle system (much like a peer-to-peer network), whereby vehicles may participate in opportunistic “Ad-Hoc” wireless networks and may produce data about its environment (pavement condition, weather data, physiological condition of passengers); act as an information gateway for such content; and collaborate with other vehicles (forward collision warning, intersection collision warning, ice on bridge…). Pretty cool.

Communication and Content sharing in the Urban Vehicle Grid (very detailed info)
