Cars that can “talk” to each other

Washington: In a first-of-its-kind effort, a USD 25 million Wi-Fi-like technology that will allow vehicles to “talk” to each other to help reduce crashes and improve traffic congestion, has been launched in the US.

The technology that allows vehicles and highway infrastructure to communicate with each other is undergoing trials in a giant experiment on the streets of Ann Arbor, Michigan.

Wireless devices will allow these “smart cars” to send signals to each other, warning their drivers of potential dangers such as stopped traffic or cars that might be blowing through a red light. They can even get traffic lights to turn green if no cars are coming the other way.
This cutting-edge technology offers real promise for improving both the safety and efficiency of our roads. That is a winning combination for drivers across America.
No one knows exactly when the technology will make its way into cars and trucks everywhere.
