USDOT/CAMP VSC3 Connected Vehicle Technology Demonstration at 2012 Annual Meeting

From ITS America

“Under the Connected Vehicle Safety Pilot Program, vehicles from each of these manufacturers will support one or more of the following safety applications:

“Emergency Electronic Brake Lights (EEBL), Forward Collision Warning (FCW), Blind Spot Warning / Lane Change Warning (BSW / LCW), Do Not Pass Warning (DNPW), Intersection Movement Assist (IMA) and Left Turn Assist (LTA)

“These safety applications will be demonstrated at the 22nd ITS America Annual Meeting and Exposition on May 21-23, 2012, at the Gaylord National Convention Center in National Harbor, Maryland. Participants will ride in the vehicles and experience the effectiveness of the safety applications in various potential crash scenarios. The vehicles used will be part of the actual test fleet that will participate in the U.S.DOT Safety Pilot Program. The objective of the demonstration is to show how V2V interoperability among vehicles from different automotive manufacturers can allow cars to communicate and understand each other. These connected vehicle safety systems may help drivers avoid crashes regardless of vehicle make, model or type.”
