Ever wondered what the next big thing automobile would be? Well, wonder no more! We’ve got the answer right here for you. Car-to-car (C2C) or vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication is said to be another ground breaking advanced innovation which would eventually help in reducing the number of roadside accidents. As reported, this allows vehicles to broadcast their position, speed, steering-wheel position, brake status, and other data to other vehicles within a few hundred meters. Cars will talk to other cars, exchanging data and alerting drivers to potential collisions. They’ll talk to sensors on signs on stoplights, bus stops, even ones embedded in the roads to get traffic updates and rerouting alerts. And they’ll communicate with your house, office, and smart devices, acting as an digital assistant, gathering information you need to go about your day.
The other cars can use such information to build a detailed picture of what’s unfolding around them, revealing trouble that even the most careful and alert driver, or the best sensor system, would miss or fail to anticipate. C2C communication should also have a bigger impact than the advanced vehicle automation technologies that have been more widely heralded. V2V warnings might come to the driver as an alert, perhaps a red light that flashes in the instrument panel, or an amber then red alert for escalating problems.
