Delphi's new affordable V2V system looks to reduce traffic accidents
Hi, I'm here with Delphi's vice president for engineering and program management, Mary [UNKNOWN], and she's gonna be talking a little about the new vehicle, the vehicle technology that they're gonna be debuting in [UNKNOWN].
Basically in the [UNKNOWN] sense, it allows all vehicles to communicate with each other.
And you might say, well why does that matter?
Well, think about This a blizzard condition, white-out condition, many vehicles on the road.
Perhaps one vehicle becomes stranded or has an accident.
An ability to then communicate to all the vehicles that are in that route to say, slow down.
Maybe exit and take a different course.
Avoid that issue, and not come up on a multi-vehicle pile up.
That would be a big advantage from a safety factor.
The other thing on a smaller sense is you driving down the road and you decide to stop for a coffee.
And maybe it's a last minute and the turn signal goes on a little late.
Your vehicle knows it's stopping and can communicate to the vehicle behind you saying be careful.
The vehicle in front of you is slowing down.
You'll actually be able to see that in Delphi parking lot, where it actually demonstrates that, and demonstrate it in different weather conditions, which is also a big factor, and [UNKNOWN] Michigan wintery weather conditions that we have here.
You don't need to really worry about Las Vegas, but.
No, Las Vegas, rain will really be a big one for us, and all the traffic of course.
I'd leave you with, if there's one thing that's most important for really improving safety on the road it's adding that vehicle to vehicle communication to every vehicle out there.
