Honda has demonstrated new safety technology to alert drivers to the presence of pedestrians and vice versa. The Vehicle-to-Pedestrian (V2P) technology aims to reduce the potential for collisions.

Honda successfully demonstrated how a car with Dedicated Short Range Communications (DSRC) technology can detect a pedestrian with a DSRC-enabled smartphone. The smartphone communicates with nearby vehicles and provides auditory and visual warnings to both the pedestrian and drivers.

A smartphone app determines the position, direction and speed of the pedestrian and the position of surrounding vehicles. If it predicts an impending collision, the system alerts the pedestrian via a repeating, high-volume beep and a warning on their smartphone screen.

At the same time, it alerts the driver with an audible alarm and visual warnings on the vehicle’s heads-up display and navigation screen. Honda also demonstrated similar technology for motorcycles. You can check out the V2P safety tech in the video below:
