The future of transportation will all be on communications. Outside a car or a vehicle that will be able to drive, most likely the next big thing is to make the car, vehicles, signs and traffic signals to be able to exchange information them via Wi-Fi waves -as. In this way, we hope drivers will be able to get the most updated information on traffic and the environment around them so they can anticipate what will happen in order to reduce accident the road.

A few words about communication in the transport technology surfaced up. V2V (Vehicle-to-vehicle) is one of them. It is essentially an automotive technology, designed to enable vehicles to talk to each other. He is currently actively developed by General Motors. Another term is V2I (Vehicle Infrastructure) which is basically a technology that enables road vehicles to communicate with their environment and aims to improve road safety.

The Department of Transportation United States (DOT) aims to place rules on V2V by the end of the year. In addition, it is currently deploying massive new pilot programs to put technology to the test, from New York City. Traffic lights in Manhattan and Brooklyn will be equipped with equipment V2I then about 10,000 vehicles in the city will be equipped with V2V. However, it is currently impossible to know whether these vehicles will have access to the data or the data will simply be collected as part of the DOT ongoing research on V2V.

Although the rules are not yet defined, however, GM has committed to begin deploying the V2V technology to its production cars in 2016. However, DOT press the press seems to be even more optimistic saying the V2V could be seen in early 2016.
