Honda holds a demonstration of its "Smart Intersection" technology for vehicle-to-everything (V2X) communication designed to reduce traffic collisions at roadway intersections, one of the first such deployments of V2X technology in a real-world setting.
Developed in partnership with the City of Marysville as part of the 33 Smart Mobility Corridor project, the pilot project seeks to address the limitations of on-board vehicle sensors in addressing traffic collisions at roadway intersections. Intersection collisions account for roughly 40 percent of all collisions and 20 percent of the nearly 35,000 traffic-related deaths that occur in the U.S. each year.
J.R. Rausch, Mayor of Marysville, welcomes Governor Kasich for remarks.
Joining them are Ted Klaus, Vice President, Honda R&D Americas, Inc. and John Bozzella, President & CEO, Global Automakers. Mrs. Bozzella
presents Gov. Kasich with the Global Automakers Award.
