Honda Has Developed the World’s First Technology to Detect the Potential for Traffic Congestion

Honda’s new traffic jam detection technology detects the potential for congestion and determines whether or not the current driving pattern is likely to create a traffic jam. Honda moved to develop the technology after recognizing that the acceleration and deceleration of an individual vehicle can influence the pattern of traffic as a whole and trigger congestion. Honda performed a series of experiments and found that the system was able to increase average speed by about 23% and also helped increase the fuel efficiency of trailing vehicles.


The system monitors the vehicle’s driving patterns to determine whether it is likely to create congestion rather than attempting to avoid already existing congestion. Based on what the system gathers, it provides the driver with information through a color-coded display. This information will help encourage a smoother driving pattern.


The congestion and fuel preservation effect can be further improved by connecting the on board terminal to a cloud server, which will provide the driver with information about the driving patterns of the vehicles ahead. Combining this information with the activation of the Adaptive Cruise Control system will maintain a constant distance between vehicles.
