GM to roll out V2V communications in 2017, from SearchAutoParts.com.
Vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) technology will make its debut in the GM product line as early as 2017. At the Intelligent Transport System World Congress in Detroit in September, GM CEO Mary Barra announced that V2V technology would be included in the 2017 Cadillac CTS.
The Cadillac will be the first commercially available vehicle with the technology (so far), which has been piloted and tested by a number of other manufacturers. That announcement followed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s (NHTSA) release of an advance notice of proposed rulemaking that marks the first step toward mandating V2V in light vehicles.
“Thanks to V2V, OnStar and a full suite of active safety features, we believe the CTS will be one of the most, if not the most, intelligent production vehicles on the road,” Barr said at the conference.
