Car-to-Car Communication May Hit Roads Soon, from U.S. News.
What if your car could “talk” to other vehicles, predicting imminent danger and warning you before a crash?
It sounds like science fiction. But vehicle-to-vehicle communication is the newest brainchild of the auto industry, and it might be coming to a road near you within the next few years.
The MIT Technology Review named V2V one of the biggest tech breakthroughs of 2015, predicting that it will become widely available as soon as next year. General Motors was the first major car company to commit, announcing in September that it would release a V2V-equipped Cadillac by 2017.
The technology has been in the works for more than a decade, but a recent pilot program has brought it closer to deployment than ever.
