Honda's motorcycle safety system being demoed in Germany

Honda is demoing a GPS-based warning system to help keep motorcycle riders safe from cars at the Car 2 Car Communication Consortium event in Germany today. The system built by Honda works with 8 other vehicle manufacturers that relay messages between motorcycles and cars with information like direction and position. Said information will be fed to riders through a HUD and in-helmet audio. Drivers will see info on their Nav system display.

They’re currently in phase four of development in Japan, but there’s no mention of how many phases there are. Honda is also testing the system in Europe and the United States.
