V2V Technology

It is no more news that 90% of the accidents that happens in our day-to-day live is as a result of human error. These human errors may surface in different forms. Most time, as a result of incapability of the driver to press or move some certain parts of the vehicle within a stipulated time hereby lapsing in time which in turn cause accident. Some other times, it is the opposite that happens, he presses or moves right vehicle parts in a wrong timing. Of course, we know that in driving, especially on high ways, everything needs to be perfect. No more, no less.

Many accidents that happen can however be prevented if there’s such a technology as Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication. The Vehicle-to-Vehicle communication is popularly referred to as V2V. Many car producing companies have been working day and night to make this research a reality. With this technology, we’ll only record few or no accidents in a year! CTS Sedans promised to make avail their own product by the end of 2017. It is the first of its kind!

The way this technology works is that it makes use of sensor technology to track the co-ordinate and/or the GPS location, the speed, direction of any near car so far it’s within the range of 300 meters away (1000 feet) and transmits it to the car in need of it (so far this car also has this technology) so that the driver can do the right thing at the right time. And what that allows us to do is include features like hard braking. This hard braking allows the vehicle to stop at the instance the break is used. Unlike the normal break, this break stops a car 5times faster than the normal gear.

Drivers can customize how they’re warned against hazards—for example, an alarm going off—through their infotainment system, and the alerts can be displayed in the board display. The new CTS offers drivers’ awareness and driver-assist-activity safety features like Adaptive Cruise Control, automatic front and rear braking, lane keep assist, forward collision mitigation, and rear cross traffic alert.

What’s different here is that Cadillac’s system relies on the FCC broadcast spectrum, unlike Tesla, which uses radar to implement features like forward collision warning. There’s potential for 5G wireless connections to play a role in the future too. However, this is only possible if all the kinks can be trashed out.
