and V2I communications technology based on dedicated short-range communications are designed to increase motorists' awareness and reduce the number of crashes by warning them of dangerous driving situations.
is primarily being developed by General Motors and there are efforts being made by motoring and engineer companies to standardise the technology across the industry.

Until every vehicle in the fleet is a smart car - something that experts estimate won't happen for another 20 to 30 years - automakers will also have to develop stop-gap devices in the form of aftermarket transponders and receivers that will enable the current fleet of "dumb" cars to use V2V
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has estimated that V2V
and V2I technologies have the potential to reduce up to 80 percent of unimpaired motor vehicle crashes.
However, the expected V2V
mandate by the NHTSA in the U.
Lehrbaum coined the term "mobile synergetics" to conceptualize the holistic enhancement of our global surface transportation ecosystem that will result from widespread integration of the emerging technologies of ITS and cooperative mobility -- including specialized on-board computing and control devices, V2I and V2V
wireless communications, adaptive navigation, and other, unimagined future technologies and applicatinos -- into vehicles of all kinds and their supporting infrastructures.
A test drive in a Cadillac CTS equipped with V2V
demonstrated two key uses of the system: lane change/blind spot warning and forward collision avoidance with auto-brake.
s new website and digital social impact app for smartphones and tablets will reward each user s engagement with points that will become real dollars for the organizations and causes selected by the user, all funded by participating sponsors.
It's important for us to harness the power of this potentially life-saving technology and use our knowledge to support policymakers working to develop the rules of the road for emerging technologies like V2V
Participating vehicles used V2V
safety technology to help everyday drivers avoid crashes as they traveled along their normal routines.
As a leader in vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V
) technologies, we are eager to work closely with Peloton to implement the first large-scale deployment of a V2V
