Developing V2V and V2I Technologies in cars to reduce vehicle crashes

The US government along with the car manufacturers is looking for a room to invent new innovative car technologies that would communicate with each other and the objects around them.

In an approach to minimize the number of accidents on the road a new technology called vehicle to vehicle communication is being tested by the vehicle manufacturers.

This technology is expected to bring a drastic improvement in the automobile industry apart from reducing the amount of accidents on the road.

Its works by passing and detecting the wireless signals about the location, speed and direction to and forth between the cars. The information is then passed to the cars surrounding the atmosphere to keep them at safe distance from each other.

A study conducted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration in 2010 says that the technology can reduce the targeted vehicle crashes occurring on the road to 79%.

V2I functions in the same way as V2V the only difference is that V2I communicates with the things surrounding the atmosphere such as traffic signals to provide safety issues information to vehicles.

NHTSA says that integrating V2I with V2V can reduce the vehicle accidents on the road by 81%. This technology could bring a drastic change in the way we drive and enhance road safety.

3 B’s to keep in mind for a safe and economical vehicle move

#B1 – Best way to ship a car

Shipping a car to a  far away distance is not an easy task and driving the car all the way to a new location involves lot of risks and often costlier.  The best and the most recommended way to move your car to another location is to hire professional car shippers. Car Shipping companies provide reliable and safe services. Sometimes driving a car to a long distance can turn costlier and often leads to wear and tear of your vehicles.

#B2 – Best time to ship a car

Hauling your car during summer seasons is considered the best moving time as this is the slow period for companies. Moving your car in such season can save your penny rather than move a car during snowbird season. Avoid car hauling during snowbird season as it often costlier. Snowbirds seasons can boost your moving rates.

#B3 – Best method to ship a car

Safe shipping of car relies on the method you choose to transport your car apart from company and season. Consider open trailers if your requirement is to ship a normal or ordinary car.  If your requirement is to transport a luxury or classic car go for enclosed trailers. The only difference is that exotic cars are costlier and needs extra protection during car moving. Enclosed method  provide protection from dust, heat and rain and hence considered safe for luxury cars.
