New Technology For Transportation Safety
On July 29 Applied Information, a transportation technology developer, held a webinar on C-V2X connected vehicle applications. Applied Information president Bryan Mulligan demonstrated how C-V2X technology could work in a positive manner to preempt traffic lights for emergency vehicles and school buses and to enable cyclists and pedestrians who had an app on their phones to be warned about accidents.
Ford Installing Smart Sensor Nodes In Miami To Give AVs X-Ray Vision
Ford and its partners which have been testing smart nodes. These nodes are sensor packages that include cameras, radar and lidar mounted above intersections where they can get a less obstructed view. The nodes use cellular-vehicle-to-everything (C-V2X) radios to transmit information to approaching AVs about potential hazards as they approach intersections.
Ford wants its cars to 'talk' with traffic lights and pedestrians
Ford is building cars that “talk” with traffic lights, road signs and pedestrians. At CES 2019 in Las Vegas on Monday, the automaker announced plans to start selling cars that feature this type of technology in 2022. The technology, called cellular vehicle-to-everything (or C-V2X for short), uses wireless signals to share road data, such as a car’s location or the color of a traffic light, with other vehicles.
You won't need a driver's license by 2040
A nascent form of vehicle-to-vehicle communication (V2V) is currently being tested in a NHTSA field trial in Ann Arbor, allowing cars to share situational data to avoid crashing into each other.
