Connected Vehicle Technology the Solution to Safety?

From ITS International

“A series of ‘driver clinics’ is under way across five states, as vehicle manufacturers and the US Government pin their hopes on connected vehicles becoming the next big advance in road safety.

“What would a car say if it could talk? Its first words might be: “Here I am”. Many vehicles are communicating that very message to each other right now. Admittedly, this is in controlled environments of US Department of Transportation (USDoT) tests, but within the next few years ‘connected vehicle’ technology may be not only viable but actually mandated by the US Government.”
