This is the kind of stuff that makes me all kinds of happy. Imagine if every car on the road is a node sending out status “tweets” 10 times a second to all cars in the vicinity allowing all cars to be aware of each other. These are the kinds of things that will save nearly 40,000 lives a year. This is health.
