We love hearing about any new kind of conversation, so I'm fascinated by V2V technology, which refers to the ability of vehicles to communicate with one another. Could eliminated a lots of car crashes according to tests conducted thus far.
Imagine if the car in front of you can let the car you are driving know that it is braking suddenly, or that its wheels are beginning to skid. Apparently it is all done with a simple antenna, and computer chip and GPS technology. I can imagine it will be especially helpful when your car is in a blind spot, stopped on the highway but blocked by other vehicles or hidden around a corner (this speaks to me big time, since I drive a Mini Cooper and often feel I'm invisible to other cars when I get hidden behind a big truck). As I understand it, when the vehicle you are driving gets an important alert from another vehicle, if you don't respond to the alert your car will bring it self to s safe stop.
V2V sounds like a major breakthrough in auto safety. It's a long way from just buckling up your seat belt to feel safe.
And besides that, what's not to love about cars talking to each other? Sounds like the Pixar film "Cars 2" has come alive. And if you don't know what Cars 2 is, you haven't been around little kids lately. A family film where the cars talk, laugh, get mad and socialize.
Maybe that's next. If every car gets V2V technology, will Bentley's only want to talk with one another?
