Delphi Automotive PLC is bringing to market Vehicle-to-Vehicle (V2V) and Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) communication technology to make the existing advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) functionality more worth.
Radio signals from car to car inform the driver a number of traffic situations ahead including road condition hazards, road work, emergency vehicle warning, stationary or slow moving vehicles, traffic jams, accidents, as well as traffic signals or signage indicators.
“The ability to detect and signal to the driver of danger ahead is a significant leap towards improving driver safety and traffic management,” said Jugal Vijayvargiya, president of Delphi’s Electronics and Safety division. “This technology also strategically positions Delphi to help automakers meet potential government regulations related to V2V communications for automated driving.”
Global production of these systems is targeted for launch in 2016 for the North American market.
