Cars Converse Via Wireless

Aug. 21, 2012
 Wireless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications may one day improve on-road safety by having cars talk to cars over the airwaves. For now, a Safety Pilot Model Deployment of 2880 cars is being conducted with the help of the United States Department of Traffic (USDOT) and the Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI).

Wireless vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications may one day improve on-road safety by having cars talk to cars over the airwaves. For now, a Safety Pilot Model Deployment of 2880 cars is being conducted with the help of the United States Department of Traffic (USDOT) and the Michigan Transportation Research Institute (UMTRI). The deployment is using wireless technology from Cohda Wireless, which is known as dedicated-short-range-communications (DSRC) technology. The deployment is being performed with the hope of learning more about how V2V communications can enable active safety systems that can assist drivers in preventing many roadway crashes.

“Safety Pilot Model Deployment is an exciting and challenging project that will deploy 2800 vehicles with DSRC technology into a real-world driving environment,” notes Debra Bezzina, Safety Pilot Senior Program Manager for UMTRI. “Cohda is a key partner with proven technology. They bring a valuable global perspective that enhances the team.” Safety systems being evaluated include forward-collision-warning (FCW), blind-spot-warning (BSW), lane-change-warning (LCW), and do-not-pass-warning (DNPW) systems.
