Telematics Update V2X for Auto Safety and Mobility Conference: NHTSA to Include V2V & V2I Tech in its 5* Crash-Assessment Testing

Share Article

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is considering changes to its five-star crash assessment testing that would put emphasis on wireless crash-avoidance technologies. These changes could take into consideration the inclusion of technologies like forward collision warning systems and lane departure assistance systems if new measures are enacted.

These sorts of technologies are powered by advanced vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2I) wireless communications. By enabling cars to ‘talk to each other’ in real time, V2X technology could eliminate 80 % of crashes involving non-impaired drivers, and could drastically reduce U.S. road accident fatalities.

With NHTSA now heavily investing time and money into V2V advances and the majority of the automakers involving themselves in testing activities, we are likely to see a large scale government-OEM reorganisation of safety features.

Now is the time to align telematics and DSRC products and services with the new connected safety trends in the industry to ensure that offerings hit the market in-line with these revolutionary market adaptations.

‘V2X for Auto Safety and Mobility USA 2012’ (20-21 March 2012) will bring together automotive, DOT, NHTSA, tier 1 and supplier executives to share expert industry knowledge, strategies and business models and create the ideal environment for partnership opportunities and networking.
An independently researched program and a world renowned collection of over 30 expert speakers has been designed specifically to ensure businesses fully prepared for the emerging new-era of intelligent transport and connected vehicle.

The conference will offer the chance for partner relationships to initiate by bringing together industry fore-runners from GM, Toyota, Volvo, Kia, Denso, BMW, Delphi, US DOT, AASHTO, Chrysler and many more.

Key Topics include:

  •     Monetizing DSRC Through Probe Data Related Opportunities
