V2V; the system that wants US out of series to prevent accidents


The technological burden that can carry the cars current is increasing and among these technologies we find the system Vehicle2Vehicle or V2V. This system allows cars ride can talk between them for the exchange of information, as valuable as traffic jams, accidents, or even alert on the inclement weather. Once you are collecting this type of information they will share with the driver so you can modify your route, or even be aware of what you can find in the way.

This technology is already is being tested by brands such as Volvo or BMW. Thanks to it, their cars are connected in real time and drivers can see the status of the road. V2V is an element that would improve the security of the drivers and many of the traffic accidents that occur by carelessness, bad weather or traffic jams is not come to produce.


Following this logic, the Department of Transportation of the united States released a report requests that the new cars and light trucks incorporate of series the technology V2V. If the new cars incorporated this technology of communication drivers would be constantly informed of what is happening a few meters from your car and therefore your safety would be increased.

Anthony Foxx, Transportation secretary, has stated that they want to end up with traffic accidents and with this technology would be a step closer to achieving that the deceased in accidents are zero. In addition, this organism also has requested that the technology V2V is connected to other attendees and driver assistance as the emergency braking system or monitoring of dead angle.

remains to Be seen if this initiative comes to fruition and if other official bodies, such as the European Union, apply the story and choose to act for our cars also incorporate.
