      This technique to provides a forward view for drivers blocked behind a large vehicle.  This requires each vehicle being fitted with a forward-looking video camera, a rear-facing video transmitter and a forward-sensing video receiver to provide a picture on each cars' dashboard video screen.  The daisy-chain system displays the number of vehicles ahead to a space available for passing.  
 
     Basic Idea first disclosed in a meeting with Chris O., 9/17/93.  The NTSB proposed an identical car-to-car communications plan 21 years later in 2014.
