Could Talking Cars Prevent a San Diego Crash?

Vehicles may soon be able to “talk” to each other and avoid potentially deadly San Diego crashes. The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recently proposed a rule that would require vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communication on light vehicles.

Vehicle-to-vehicle communication is one of the latest crash avoidance technologies being tested on the road. It allows cars to "talk" to each other by exchanging basic safety data, such as speed and position, ten times per second. The hope is that the information exchanged between the vehicles can help identify risks and provide drivers with warnings about potential rear-end, lane change, and intersection crashes.

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