Cars That ”Talk” To Each Other Set To Be Unveiled In The US Under Trump

The proposed vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) talking cars designed to communicate to each other in the same language is set to be unveiled by the US according to reports on Tuesday.

“We are carrying the ball as far as we can to realize the potential of transportation technology to save lives,” Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said.

“This long-promised V2V rule is the next step in that progression. Once deployed, V2V will provide 360-degree situational awareness on the road and will help us enhance vehicle safety.”

The V2V rule would require new cars to use the same standard to transmit data — such as location, direction and speed — to nearby vehicles.

Reports indicate that the V2V car is waiting for the incoming administration of President-elect Donald Trump to determine if or how to implement it.

The agency said it would also soon issue guidance for Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communications, enabling vehicles to “talk” to roadway infrastructure such as traffic lights, stop signs and work zones.

“Advanced vehicle technologies may well prove to be the silver bullet saving lives on our roadways,” said Mark Rosekind, administrator of the V2V “automated vehicle technologies each hold great potential to make our roads safer, and when combined, their potential is untold.”
