V2X Communication For Road Safety And Efficiency


Vehicles these days are able to connect to the cloud and provide personalised information to the driver. As a next step, vehicles are expected to use V2V and V2X communication to allow safer, more efficient and more comfortable driving. The drive could be safer because the vehicle will recognise hazardous situations pre-emptively, even if these are out of sight due to a bend or other vehicles ahead. One example is the electronic brake light, which warns the driver about a hard braking vehicle ahead. The potential effect of this function, together with other cooperative driver assistance features, has successfully been evaluated in field operational tests across Europe. Ford reveals some of the results from these FOTs and outlines the potential of V2X communication for road safety and efficiency.
