Cars will Soon Start Talking to Each Other: Set by U.S. Government

By on

The Obama government in Washington said last Monday about the first step towards the future cars and light trucks that are to be equipped with technology that possibly let the vehicles to caution each other of possible risk in time to stay away from crashes.

A research report released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), guesstimate that the technology could ultimately put a stop to as many as 592,000 left-turn and intersection hurtles a year and has ability to save 1,083 lives. The organization said that it will begin drafting rules to require the technology in new vehicles.

A part mirror forewarning signal in a Ford Taurus is observed at an automobile testing area in Oxon Hill, Md. The NHTSA said last Monday that it will start the sketching conventions to require technology in new vehicles that allows them to caution each other for danger.

This technology helps a car or a light truck to recognise another vehicle having the same technology by means of a radio signal that transmit the vehicle's pose constantly.To give better idea, a radar system on a ship is the best example. The nearby vehicles will be shown on the radars as if it moves near or far, right or left and avoids in the near future collision.

Talking about the security, the information sent between vehicles does not identify those vehicles, but merely contains basic safety data, NHTSA said. "The system as contemplated, contains several layers of security and privacy protection to ensure that vehicles can rely on messages sent from other vehicles," the agency said.

The safety requests is currently being developed that can provide warnings to drivers so that they can put off about when collisions will happen, but do not mechanically operate any vehicle systems such as braking or steering.

According to the report, completion of the technology on new cars or existing cars would rate around $350 per vehicles in 2020. The cost might also come little low to $100 over time after the producers get a hold on experiencing the production of  the devices.
