Volvo Cars and Volvo Trucks are separate companies, and have been for almost 20 years. The separation occurred in 1999, when Volvo Group sold its car manufacturing business to Ford, which in turn sold Volvo Cars to Geely in 2010. But despite being separate, the vehicle makers share a name, and now they will also share data between their products to prevent accidents.
It's setting up a wireless network in big cities, on highways
It's among the first V2I projects of this scale in the country.
The feature will be standard on cars in the US and Canada.
The organization believes the technology has the potential to prevent hundreds of thousands of crashes.
The world isn't designed for autonomous cars, but Audi is trying to change that.
The alliance takes a joint approach to technical and regulatory hurdles.
These augmented reality heads-up displays could be a big help for avoiding crashes.
Transportation engineers have started laying the groundwork for a traffic world in which cars communicate with other cars and infrastructure like bridges and traffic lights.
A transportation bill enacted last week isn't just another piece of legislation. It has far-reaching implications for everyone who drives a car.
Google now a has patent for technology to broadcast video between vehicles to make drivers aware of upcoming obstructions before they can see the problem.
Ahead of autonomous vehicles, lightweighting, and hydrogen fuel cells, the MIT Technology Review puts vehicle-to-vehicle communications on its list of Ten Breakthrough Technologies of 2015. But with car hacking making more headlines more frequently, will V2V be just another way to for your car to be remotely commandeered?
Systems now being developed by the federal government to handle vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure communications in an upcoming connected-car era may have the capability to more precisely track the locations and speeds of individual motorists.
The applications of connected-car technology may eventually lie beyond the authority of its creators.
The federal government is inching closer to mandating cars have the ability to communicate with each other, in a move regulators say could reduce crashes while still protecting motorists' personal information.
Your car is about to get a lot more chatty. The Department of Transportation and the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced today that Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) technologies will be coming to all new cars. At some point in the future. Most likely.
We head back to CES in Las Vegas to check on the progress of autonomous vehicles in 2014. We go hands-free on the highway with Audi, narrowly avoid a collision with Ford and hear all about BMW's drifting driverless car. But first we take a ride on Induct's self-driving Navia shuttle.
A number of automakers are working on developing fully autonomous cars, but it looks like the groundwork for such technologies will likely show up first as semi-autonomous systems for both safety and convenience. Following recent announcements from Nissan and Ford in this area, Toyota has now released information for some of its advanced semi-autonomous technologies that could be offered in production cars over the next few years.
