A Future Where Cars Talk To Traffic Signals??

So here is the U.S. Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood website pick of the day:

Imagine a world where car crashes are reduced, vehicles talk to traffic signals, and travelers get accurate travel time and route options... as well as data about the
potential environmental impacts of their choices.

If you can imagine that, you've just imagined 'IntelliDrive,' a multimodal initiative that aims to enable safe, interoperable networked wireless communications among vehicles, the infrastructure, and passengers' personal communications devices.

IntelliDriveSM research is being sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT) and others to leverage the potential capabilities of wireless technology to make surface transportation safer, smarter and greener.

Check out 'IntelliDrive' and let me know what you think. Is it really cool or too 'Big Brother-ish?'
