    I think rather than hijacking Kev's thread, I probably ought to make my own.
    Bit late for that, methinks :-)

    Well said...on a populated highway if the technology was widespread you could do some very cool things with mesh communications. I was thinking wireless usb or the new bluetooth though-which allows for multiple simultaneous nodes unlike a wifi connection.

    Also, the other common thread is one of privacy; I'm simply not ok with my car GPS and OBDII information being made publicly available as it's happening. I do fear that always-on internet in cars will lead to a catastrophic loss of privacy.
    1) Great Idea - I see traffic info as the single greatest feature mesh networks could provide.
    2) If only that was possible with obdii....air/fueld ratios have little basis in air quality or other such measurements. Fuel efficiency could be tracked but probably wouldn't be very usable in a mesh environment.

    I really think privacy is a non-issue...the user will always have control over what data is transmitted from their vehicle. Additionally, mesh networks would allow for anonymous group data collection if designed correctly.

    Well, the air cleanliness thing was just an example, I'm sure there's lots of better examples :-)
