  • 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe, 2018 New York auto show

    Hyundai has a new partner to develop future vehicle-to-everything (V2X) technology in Autotalks, an Israel-based company founded in 2008. The Korean automaker announced on Tuesday it will partner with the technology company via a direct investment in its operations. V2X includes vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure technology. Effectively, the tech allows cars to communicate with other connected things, such as traffic lights, roadways, buildings, other cars, and more. Hyundai said the partnership is vital to its future work with self-driving cars; the automaker plans to reveal...

    5G technology could unlock vehicle-to-infrastructure communication

    Modems are becoming commonplace in cars. Drivers like to use them to stream music and create wi-fi hotspots. Automakers like them for the data they can report and the updates they can push to their cars. Dealers like them because they tell drivers when to come in for service. Today's modems run on...

    Connected Vehicle Tests To Begin In Official NHTSA Trials

    Over the last few months the race to develop connected vehicles that "talk" to each other as they're driven along has picked up the pace, with several technology companies and carmakers developing systems to make our roads safer. Now, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) is...

  • BMW Left Turn Assistant

    Back in May, we told you about new technology from BMW aimed at making left turns safer. Now, the company has uploaded a handful of videos showing that technology in motion, as well as other developments that could eventually make your commute more worry-free. All five of the tech developments highlighted on videos below rely on vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) communications -- the same sort of technology currently being tested in the U.S. by Ford and the Department of Transportation. V2V takes conventional collision-avoidance systems several steps further: it relies not just on a single set of...

    Six Cities Named For New Vehicle-To-Vehicle (V2V) Communications Trials

    Vehicle-to-vehicle communication, V2V for short, is nothing new. In fact, automakers and governments alike have been working on the technology for the past several years. Most V2V systems work by warning drivers about potential danger from other vehicles. They do this by exchanging information...

    Dallas, Minneapolis, San Francisco Become Part Of DOT's 'Talking Car' Project

    We all know about the growing popularity of collision avoidance systems. As recently as this week, we've even heard about developments on the autonomous car front. Problem is, most of those systems depend on vehicles going it alone, using radar and other technology to avoid hazards in their way...

    Smart Cars And The Need For Smarter Software

    There were a couple of more interesting articles the past few days involving software in cars. Early last week, Markus Waibul over on the Automaton blog and I both wrote (here and here) on the concept of "car platooning." I also noted in my post the Ford development effort involving a new crash...

  • Ford Intelligent Vehicles preview

    The Washington Auto Show isn't known as the place for hot new concepts or production models, but it does have its share of future vehicle tech, and the latest from Ford previews its plans for vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) tech aimed at improving traffic, safety, and efficiency. The first prototypes sporting Ford's V2V system are currently under construction with plans to tour the U.S. this spring. They'll feature the ability to communicate wirelessly with each other, relaying traffic hazards, congestion, and other information to help drivers navigate their routes. Ford's technology works over a...
