The Future Is Now: New Technology To Stop Crashes

Posted on 06/02/2013

 

Researchers have been working on something called Vehicle to Vehicle Technology. They say that this new technology has the potential of stopping 4.5 million crashes every year.Ronald Medford from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says that, “It has the potential to address about 80 percent of all the crashed that happen in the country today, other than the ones that involve impaired driving.”

How it works is that every car is equipped to send and receive radio signals, in essence WIFI for vehicles.

The computer that is inside the car processes the information to understand other cars’ locations and if they have the potential to crash.

An example of this would be that if someone was heading the wrong way towards your car, you would receive a warning that there is a vehicle you are about to crash with and to take action. In some of the more advanced systems, you might see someday that they brake automatically.

The Department of Transportation is working with most major car companies both in the U.S. and around the world.

The new technology is expected to hit the roadway next year.
