DENSO Demonstration at ITS World Congress to Show “Talking Car” Technology Language is Universal
The language of “Talking Car” technology can be universal. The key is cross-Atlantic collaboration. DENSO will provide the platform that demonstrates how a single vehicle-to-vehicle and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) technology application is viable across two continents. The United States Department of Transportation (USDOT) and the European Commission (EC) will demonstrate this activity at the 19th Intelligent Transport Systems World Congress 2012 in Vienna, Austria, Oct. 22-26, 2012.
The real-time demonstration will show a U.S. and European vehicle exchanging wireless safety messages using identical DENSO V2X hardware and similar software to illustrate the Emergency Electronic Brake Lights scenario. Pressing the brake pedal in the lead vehicle triggers an alert in the trailing vehicle – It does not matter whether the EU or US protocol is active, both behave the same for the user. What this demonstrates is that the same hardware and similar software could be used in either/both continents.
