Ford is to create new cars called vehicle-to-vehicle communications, these cars communicate with each other wirelessly to notify others of any dangers on the roads. This could improve incidents and accidents by up to 81% and improve the environment and alert drivers of any congestion. In the US Ford will build the first ever car in the spring with more to follow in the summer and these will be examined by scientists and engineers to further develop this technology.

 

Ford will be the first to build these prototype cars for demonstration and they believe that they will drastically reduce road accidents. The intelligent communication is done through advanced Wi-Fi signals and identifies hazardous road conditions such as a pile up of cars or busy traffic ahead. These advanced systems have lots of benefits and include ease of traffic congestion, alerts to the roads and motorways ahead, news of road accidents and saves the driver on their fuel and time so these situations can be monitored and avoided and make alternative routes to reach their destination.

 

It appears that the time when are cars are a computer is coming nearer and technology is so advanced that the driver will have to do very minimal apart from activate their car at the initial set off. Cars will be constantly communicating essential information on our environment making life a lot easier and safer. Watch out for further information on the development and progress of these cars which will be touring the US in spring.
