Imagine the congested city streets of New York, San Francisco, or Los Angeles. Now, imagine those same streets traffic free, drivers and their vehicles going where they need to go without the bumper-to-bumper headache—it’s a miracle. Volvo Corporation, along with other European automakers, has joined General Motors’ Car-2-Car Communication Corporate to safely eliminate common drier mistakes that results in a collision. Safety is always at the top of priorities when it comes to new vehicle technology, but with that said, the same technology has many other benefits which include an overall easier commute.
The Car-2-Car communication which was first presented in 2006 using a Cadillac can potentially be available in 2016. Erik Israelsson, Project Leader Cooperative, Intelligent Transport Systems at Volvo Car Corporation explains that, “Vehicular communication helps in reducing over-crowding and finding better route by real time processing. The car to car communication is made possible through advance exchange of vital information between the vehicles such as their speed, position, direction, etc.; and between the vehicle and roadside units, such as safety warning and traffic information.”
