What is a ?Smart Intersection?? It is a future safety technology leveraging GPS technology and wireless infrastructure-to-vehicle communications to reduce traffic accidents and ease congestion. The smart intersection is located near Ford?s Research & Innovation Center in Dearborn and communicates with specially equipped test vehicles to warn drivers of potentially dangerous traffic situations, such as when a vehicle is about to run through a red light. The intersection is outfitted with technology that can monitor traffic signal status, GPS data and digital maps to assess potential hazards, and then transmit the information to vehicles.
