It will know when you're on your way home from the office, and will give you an estimate of the travel time, and so on.
Does this require some new OS services that are only in JB, or can it be added to ICS as an app?

I think it requires JB

But the voice search is the Google Search app, unsure if this has speaks on earlier versions (speaks to you in JB, just searches on earlier)

It can be hacked to work in ICS, but it genuinely needs JB. Google improved the voice algorithms and that's in the framework, so if you hack it to work on ICS (as some have done), it works, but the voice recognition capabilities are diminished.
